Arsene Wenger says doesn’t believe Theo Walcott will be available for tomorrow’s game against Manchester United.
Despite the winger going on international duty with England he didn’t feature at all for Roy Hodgson’s side, and at his press conference this morning the Arsenal manager said of Walcott, “I don’t think he will be available tomorrow.”
It’s believed he’s picked up some kind of injury but quite how serious it is remains to be seen. Hopefully it’s just the typical niggle a player out for a long time gets when they ramp up their comeback, but he didn’t train yesterday and is likely to miss out tomorrow with Arsenal unwilling to take any chances.
Wenger also confirmed that Danny Welbeck’s participation is dependent on a medical assessment this morning.
The striker, who would be keen to make his mark against old side, suffered a slight hamstring strain playing for England against Scotland and a final decision on his availability will be made later today.
