Calum Chambers sidelined again after picking up Carabao Cup injury

12

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.
