Arsenal boss Unai Emery says goalkeeper Petr Cech could be sidelined for up to three weeks after limping off during the win over Watford.

Cech suffered an injury in the first half of the 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium and had to be replaced by Bernd Leno.

And the 36-year-old Cech will be assessed by the Arsenal medical team on Sunday.

Emery said after the match: "I think it's a hamstring.

"Maybe he will miss two or three weeks. I hope not more.

"We will see tomorrow."

"His performance was the best for us today."
