Rob Holding is set to spend a month on the sidelines due to injury, according to reports, cited on The Sun.
The Arsenal centre back picked up a hamstring injury during the warm-up before the loss to Man City at the Etihad.
The 25-year-old was replaced by veteran defender David Luiz as the former Bolton Wanderers star underwent a scan to determine the extent of the damage.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has allayed fears of not being without the England defender in the next six games, Daily Mail claims.
The Gunners will be making a trip to face Austria Vienna in their first Europa League campaign of the season without Holding.
And the Englishman looks likely to miss their fixtures against Dundalk and Swedish side Molde in subsequent matches in Europea.
Before the next international break, Arsenal will be playing important games domestically against Leicester City, Man United and Aston Villa.
Holding has made seven starts out of eight games in Arteta's squad this season and his absence could open the door for William Saliba who was signed on loan from Saint Etienne in 2019.
