Wenger Confirms Injury Blow For Dany Welbeck
Arsenal Coach Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Danny Welbeck is out for at least three weeks with a groin injury.
Wenger said on Tuesday that the striker is unlikely to return before next month’s international break.
Welbeck suffered a knock in Arsenal’s 0-0 draw at Chelsea on Sunday, and will miss Wednesday’s League Cup match against third tier side Doncaster, Premier League games with West Bromwich Albion and Brighton & Hove Albion, and a Europa League fixture against Bate Borisov.
“Danny has a scan today, we don’t know how bad his groin injury is but he will certainly be out until the international break,” Wenger told the club’s website.
The 26-year-old, who has scored three times for his club this season, is also unlikely to feature for England in their upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia on Oct. 5 and Lithuania on Oct. 8.
