Arsenal fear Theo Walcott could be out for 4 weeks

Arsenal fear Theo Walcott could be out for 4 weeks after the England winger was stretchered off towards the end of Arsenal's 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur. Walcott will have a scan tomorrow morning that will give Arsenal the full idea of the scope of the injury, but it is thought that Walcott stretched his knee ligaments, resulting in a likely lay-off of 4 weeks. Arsenal will face Aston Villa, Fulham, Southampton, Coventry City and Crystal Palace during that period, with any longer lay-off taking Walcott into the week where Arsenal play Liverpool and Manchester United.

Luckily, Arsenal do have some options if Walcott is absent. Lukas Podolski has returned recently from a 3-month absence, and Serge Gnabry has impressed in limited action this season, with his most recent outing earning rave reviews. Arsenal will also be boosted by the return of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who will return to training in the next week, as will Yaya Sanogo.
