Arsenal and England striker Theo Walcott has been ruled out of action for a further 2 weeks after the striker suffered a set back in his bid to make a return back to Arsenal after missing the last 4 weeks due to an abdominal injury which late required surgery.
Theo Walcott who was hitherto expected to make a return back to the Arsenal squad in time for when the gunners take on Borussia Dortmund is now set to miss the clash against the Germans on Tuesday as well as the premier league clash against premiership new boys Crystal Palace. He will also miss the capital one cup clash against Chelsea.
“He had to stop, to jog again – he is at least two weeks away now,” Wenger was quoted by the Telegraph.
He could however be fit in time for when Arsenal play Liverpool in two weeks time although he is likely to be risked against Liverpool unless he is 100% fit as Arsenal manager would not want him to get worst and miss more action.
Walcott is not the only Arsenal player out of action due to injury. The gunners have also been without Lukas Podolski, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby as they continue to surpass everyone’s expectations so far this season.
