'Mkhitaryan could return for Europa League semis' – Wenger

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is hopeful Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be fit to return in two weeks, placing him in contention for the Gunners' upcoming Europa League semi-finals, Goal.com reports.

STEPANAKERT, APRIL 13, ARTSAKHPRESS:The Armenian international suffered knee ligament damage in the 4-1 quarter-final first-leg win over CSKA Moscow and Wenger was concerned the Armenia international could be out for several weeks.

Some reports suggested the January signing from Manchester United could even miss the remainder of the campaign after an encouraging start to his career in north London.

However, speaking after his side claimed a 2-2 draw in Moscow on Thursday to secure a 6-3 aggregate win, the Gunners boss was more optimistic ahead of Friday's last-four draw.

"Yes, [it's a] ligament strain and he should be out for two more weeks," Wenger told a news conference. "Don't be too worried. We have good medical staff and he's very serious in his rehab."
