Wenger confirms Welbeck groin injury

Wenger confirms Welbeck groin injury”

It must be an extremely frustrating for the Arsenal and England global forward Danny Welbeck to have picked up an injury that looks set to keep him out of action for about a month, because Wellbz was enjoying a good run in the starting line-up and was in good form with goals for club and country flowing.

And after Welbeck had a scan on Monday, Wenger confirmed that he would not be able to return this month.

Following the draw, Wenger said he didn't know how long Welbeck could be sidelined for.

Arsenal are expected to be without the England global for their mid-week League Cup tie at home to Doncaster.

Many have noted that the North London outfit perform far better as a defensive unit when Ozil is not in the team, with some sections of Arsenal fans now calling for the 28-year-old to be indefinitely benched during big games.

Midfielder Francis Coquelin will also be sidelined until after the global break as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury sustained during the 3-0 win over Bournemouth.

Playmaker Mesut Ozil, midfielder Francis Coquelin and full-back Mathieu Debuchy will also be absent on Wednesday. "He has a little inflammation of his knee".

But the manager confirmed that both Calum Chambers and Jack Wilshere will be in the squad to face the League One side.

"Yes [it will be a mix], but it will be a similar team to the one that played against Cologne", Wenger added, hinting that the likes of David Ospina, Rob Holding, Per Mertesacker, Mohamed Elneny, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud could all start.
