Arsenal's Danny Welbeck out for at least four weeks with groin injury

Arsenal's Danny Welbeck out for at least four weeks with groin injuryā€¯

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck has been ruled out for a month with a groin injury, according to the Telegraph.

Welbeck will miss Wednesday's Carabao Cup clash with Doncaster, the Premier League games with West Brom and Brighton and the Europa League tie at Bate Borisov of Belarus.

Reports suggest he could be out of action for around a month, which would be a major blow to Arsene Wenger considering he's started all five of Arsenal's Premier League games so far this season. We don't know how bad his groin injury is but he will certainly be out until the global break'.

The Gunners play Watford on Saturday 14 October, at which point Welbeck could be back in contention.

Playmaker Mesut Ozil, midfielder Francis Coquelin and full-back Mathieu Debuchy will also be absent this evening.

Arsenal are likely to name a mix of experience and youth for the tie against Doncaster Rovers

Questions surrounding Ozil's importance to the Gunners' fortunes have come to the fore over recent weeks, with their impressive performance in a 0-0 stalemate away to Chelsea last weekend having come with the German sidelined through injury.

On Mesut Ozil, who was rested for last week's win over Cologne before missing the Chelsea match with a muscle problem, Wenger said: "Mesut is training again, but for tomorrow no [he will not feature]". As you might have heard I'm suffering from a minor inflammation of my knee'.

Defender Calum Chambers will be included against Doncaster.

The younger players will be hoping to be given a chance in the League Cup, a tournament manager Arsene Wenger has previously used to blood academy talent into first-team football. They get on very, very well.
