LONDON.

Arsenal have been left reeling after midweek international fixtures left Arsene Wenger with over half a team with injuries.

Captain William Gallas, full-back Bacary Sagna and striker Nicklas Bendtner have all been ruled out of the Emirates Stadium meeting with Everton on Saturday while Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie and Johan Djourou all suffered less serious injuries.

"Unfortunately we have lost some players over the 10 days (international break) - William Gallas, Bacary Sagna and Nicklas Bendtner," Wenger said.

"These are heavy losses and we have to compensate them.

"Fortunately the three of them don't look to be out for a long, long time - but they will be out for the weekend game and I think the game on Tuesday."

One compensation for Wenger is that Everton boss David Moyes has equally serious injury/illness problems.
