Calum Chambers sidelined again after picking up Carabao Cup injury


Last night Calum Chambers started his first game for the Gunners since the opening day of last season, that tumultuous 4-3 defeat to Liverpool.

The 23 year old did quite well in the first period of the 1-0 win over Doncaster, but was replaced at half-time by Josh Dasilva.

Initially it was though he was being eased back into first action, but it turns out the centre-half picked up an injury which is going to see him sidelined for a couple of weeks.

Speaking after the game, Arsene Wenger confirmed the problem, saying, “Chambers is injured again on the hip, yes. It doesn’t look too bad, but I think he will be about again for one or two weeks.”

There was also a Theo Walcott problem to contend with.

“He had a kick behind his knee at half-time and in the second half he got another kick,” said Wenger. “I don’t think it’s big, it looks to me a kick – not more than that.”

Nothing too serious then, and nothing to really worry about the first team, but we continue to wait for a definitive Danny Welbeck update.
