Danny Welbeck will be out at least until after next month's international break with a groin injury sustained in Arsenal's match against Chelsea on Sunday.
Welbeck will miss Wednesday's Carabao Cup visit of Doncaster to the Emirates as well as the Premier League home games against West Brom and Brighton and the Europa League trip to face Bate Borisov of Belarus.
"Danny has a scan today," said Arsene Wenger. "We don't know how bad his groin injury is but he will certainly be out until the international break."
Welbeck came on as a substitute for England in both of their World Cup Qualifying victories earlier this month, scoring the final goal in the 4-0 win away to Malta.
Gareth Southgate's men next host Slovenia on October 5 before concluding their Group F challenge away to Lithuania on October 8.
Arsenal's first game after the internationals is against Watford on Saturday, October 14 at Vicarage Road.
Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil, midfielder Francis Coquelin and his French compatriot, full-back Mathieu Debuchy, will also be absent for Arsenal on Wednesday evening.
Midfielder Jack Wilshere played his first Gunners game in over a year in last week's Europa League win over Cologne.
Ozil remains sidelined with the knee problem which meant he missed the trip to Chelsea on Sunday which ended goalless.
Wenger said: "Mesut is training again, but for (Wednesday), no (he will not feature). He has a little inflammation of his knee."
Defender Calum Chambers will be included against Doncaster.
"It will be a similar team to the one that played against Cologne," Wenger confirmed.
