Arsenal's Nicklas Bendtner has picked up a fresh injury and is a major doubt for this weekend's clash with Birmingham.

The Danish striker has already missed a sizeable chunk of the season following groin surgery.

He returned at the turn of the year, but he has now suffered a suspected twisted ankle in the win over West Ham last weekend.

Bendtner is now doubting he will be involved this week, saying: "At half-time [against West Ham] I said to Arsene Wenger that I probably couldn't play the whole game.

"I hope to resume training on Thursday or Friday - that would put me in the frame for Birmingham but I'm not confident I will progress so rapidly."
