Arsene Wenger has revealed that Theo suffered a setback in training last Thursday and will miss the Champions League game against Dortmund, the league game against Crystal Palace, and the Capital One Cup game against Chelsea. He might be ready for the league game against Liverpool on November 2. Wenger said Theo is at least "two weeks away" from returning.
The Dortmund miss was expected, and the team certainly shouldn't need Theo to win against Crystal Palace, but having Theo as an option against Chelsea would have been nice. But meh, it's the Capital One Cup. Play the bench and the kids, Arsene. It would have been nice for Theo to get a run out in the Capital One Cup so that he could get some match fitness back, but here's hoping that he doesn't have any more setbacks, and we at least get him back on the bench as a supersub for the Liverpool game.
