LONDON (AP) - Arsenal’s Robin van Persie will be sidelined for three weeks because of a knee injury and will miss next week’s Champions League match at Barcelona.

The Dutch forward was injured while scoring in Sunday’s 2-1 loss to Birmingham in the League Cup final.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says “we had bad news on the scan and he will be out for the next three weeks for sure.”

Arsenal has a 2-1 lead over Barcelona going into Tuesday’s second leg.
