Xavi, 31, underwent tests and an MRI scan on Tuesday, with the club later announcing news of his likely absence on their website.

He should be be back for the clash with Real Sociedad next weekend, which comes days before the Gunners arrive at Camp Nou for the crunch Champions League second-leg clash.
