Fabregas is out for the season

Arsenal captain Fabregas

Arsenal have lost their captain Cesc Fabregas for the rest of the football season because of a bad injury.

The midfielder left Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final match against Barcelona on crutches.

Fans were worried Fabregas had fractured his leg, and a scan revealed a crack in his calf bone.

It's a big blow for the Gunners as he'll be out for at least six weeks, but his Spanish fans are still hoping he'll be fit for the World Cup.
