Arsenal forward Welbeck out for at least one month

Arsenal forward Welbeck out for at least one month”

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck will be out for at least three weeks after injuring his groin at the weekend.

The England worldwide suffered the injury in the last quarter of the Gunners' goalless draw with Chelsea on Sunday.

Boss Arsene Wenger told arsenal.com on Tuesday: "Danny has a scan today".

The forward was in considerable pain after the game, but the injury is not said to be serious although Arsenal will not risk Welbeck's fitness by rushing him back.

The 4 fixtures he will not feature in if he is out up till the global break would be Carabao (EFL) Cup game against Doncaster, Premier League clashes against West Brom and Brighton, and the Europa League fixture at BATE Borisov.

Arsenal return to action on October 14 following the second worldwide break of the season, with a trip to face Watford at Vicarage Road.

Arsenal are unlikely to take any chances with Welbeck's recovery given his history of injury problems.

Further to his absence from club football, the 26-year-old will likely miss England's World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia and Lithuania.

Alexis Sanchez, who played the full match against Cologne and scored a brilliant second goal in an eventful 3-1 victory, could also feature from the off after appearing as a substitute in each of Arsenal's two Premier League matches since the transfer window closed.

Welbeck made his return to the squad for the games against Malta and Slovakia earlier this month, playing in both games and scoring against the Maltese.

One name which will be missing, however, is Danny Welbeck, after the England striker suffered yet another injury setback.
