Middlesbrough hit by Arca injury

Middlesbrough have suffered another early season blow with news that new signing Julio Arca is out for three weeks with a broken foot.

The 25-year-old Argentine fractured a bone in his foot in the defeat at Reading, where Boro took a two-goal lead before losing 3-2.

Arca is Boro boss Gareth Southgate's only summer signing to date, captured for 1.75m from Sunderland.

Boro face champions Chelsea at the Riverside stadium on Wednesday.

Arca was injured in a penalty-box scramble at the end of the first half at the Madejski stadium.

He was substituted at half time, with Stuart Parnaby switching to left-back and Andrew Davies coming on at right-back.
