Just as he seemed to be finding his feet with the Gunners Manu Adebayor suffered a thigh injury in the 2-0 defeat of West Brom in the Carling Cup.
Arsene Wenger said the Togoloese frontman will miss at least 3 weeks.
Arsène Wenger said: "It doesn`t look too good. He will miss Everton and maybe more. This type of injury usually takes 21 days."
Hopefully this will give other players the chance to showcase their talents, and Ade does return he picks up where he left off.
