Arsenal's Nigerian striker Chuba Akpom will be on the sidelines for a while with a back injury.
Akpom confirmed the injury on his official Twitter handle on Friday.
He however expressed confidence that he will overcome his latest setback.
"Gutted to be out for a while with this back injury. I'll be back stronger," he wrote on his handle.
Akpom's only appearance for Arsenal this season was against Nottingham Forest in the English Football League Cup third round tie which Arsenal won 4-0.
He is yet to feature for Arsenal in the English Premier League.
