Swansea City will be without the services of striker Bafetimbi Gomis for up to four weeks after the Frenchman suffered a hamstring injury in the 1-1 draw with Everton.
Gomis had to be replaced in the early stages of Saturday’s match and a scan has confirmed the bad news.
The 29-year-old, who has enjoyed a good run of form since becoming the club’s man striker following the sale of Wilfried Bony to Manchester City in January, will miss the Premier League matches against Leicester City, Newcastle United and Stoke City.
It is hoped that Gomis will be able to return for the match at Arsenal on 11th May.
“Scans this week revealed a grade two hamstring strain which will keep the French international sidelined for around three to four weeks,” said a statement on the official Swansea website.
Gomis, who moved to the Liberty Stadium from Lyon on a free transfer last summer, had scored four goals in seven games before suffering the injury against Roberto Martinez’s side.
Nelson Oliveira or Marvin Emnes are set to replace Gomis for Saturday’s game against Leicester City side that has won its last two Premier League matches and is now 2.00 to be relegated this term.
Swansea are 21.00 to win the match 2-0, with Emnes available at 3.40 to score at any time against the Foxes.
