Benayoun out for a week after Carling Cup strain

Chelsea loanee Yossi Benayoun is set to spend a spell on the sidelines at Arsenal, according to reports from ESPN. The Israeli international, who made a last minute move to the Emirates, had skipped one medical test in order to complete the move in time, which may have seen certain issues overlooked.

Benayoun picked up a side strain in the club’s Carling Cup win over Shrewsbury on Tuesday; the injury however is not believed to be very serious, and could keep Yossi out for just a couple of weeks.

Benayoun said on Twitter on Wednesday evening: “Very disappointed as I have a strain and will be out for a week or so.”
