According to the Telegraph, Danny Welbeck will be sidelined for at least a month with the groin injury he sustained at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The England international, playing his sixth consecutive Premier League game, pulled up inside the final 10 minutes and was replaced by Olivier Giroud.
Welbeck went for a scan today and will undergo another tomorrow as the club look to grasp how bad an injury it is. As things stand he could miss six Arsenal games, plus England’s final two World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia and Lithuania.
As anybody who has suffered this injury will testify, it’s bloody painful, to the point where kicking a football is nigh on impossible.
Welbeck has started the season in good form, scoring against Leicester and Bournemouth. His position in the side will likely fall to Alexis with Alexandre Lacazette and Olivier Giroud battling for the central striker role.
