Lauren remains out until new year

Arsenal right-back Lauren has been ruled out for a further two months as he continues his comeback from injury.

The Cameroonian, 29, has been sidelined since undergoing surgery last January to correct a long-term knee problem.

"I don't think you will see Lauren in the team before January," manager Arsene Wenger told the club website.

"He's making good progress but he has four or five weeks before he comes back to normal training and then it'll take a month to come back into the team."

Lauren last played for Arsenal on 21 January when the Gunners beat Wigan 2-1 in the Carling Cup semi-final second leg.

"He played up to the limit of his pain and then maybe he played a little too long," added Wenger.

"That created some damage in his knee, which had to be repaired, but he is a tough, tough boy. He works hard and he will come back."
