Arsenal centre-back Per Mertesacker will miss the start of the Premier League season with a knee injury.

Manager Arsene Wenger said the former Germany defender will be out for “a few months” after picking up the injury in Friday’s pre-season draw with Lens.

Mertesacker, 31, did not travel with the rest of Arsenal’s squad for their two-match tour of the United States.
