Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema to undergo ‘minor knee surgery

Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema requires minor knee surgery and will miss "several weeks" of action, according to manager Jonas Eidevall.

Miedema and team-mate Victoria Pelova returned early from the international break with the Netherlands ahead of their Nations League third-place play-off match with Germany on Wednesday.

Arsenal face rivals Tottenham on Sunday in the Women's Super League and speaking in his pre-match press conference, Eidevall revealed it wasn't good news for Miedema.

"She requires a minor knee surgery and that is going to have her off the pitch for several weeks," he said.

"We will have an update on that after the surgery and when we see how she is progressing."
