Jurrien Timber picks up injury on his Premier League debut for Arsenal

Jurrien Timber has been forced off injured for Arsenal on his Premier League debut against Nottingham Forest.

Timber, who joined the club this summer from Ajax for £34 million, was handed his first league start by Mikel Arteta as the Gunners faced Forest at the Emirates.

He looked bright at the back and got stuck in as he received a caution for a challenge on Brennan Johnson in the first-half.

But he seemed to injure himself in the process as he received treatment. Despite the supposed knock, the Dutchman came out for the second-half.

However, he lasted just five minutes after the break as he pulled up with a suspected calf injury.

Takehiro Tomiyasu replaced Timber, who hobbled off the pitch and went straight down the tunnel.

Speaking after his team's 2-1 victory over Forest, Arteta said: "The physio and the doctors looked at him and were happy to continue.

"Straight away in the second half, he made a movement and it felt funny. We will have to assess him."
