While there is more than a few bottles of ink to spill over Arsene Wenger’s team selection ahead of Arsenal’s Champions League match up with PSG, there was notable absence from the teamhsheet:
There's no place for @theowalcott in our squad tonight - he misses out on #PSGvAFC with a mild knee injury pic.twitter.com/jV6mOb3e84— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) September 13, 2016
At the moment, there is no details on the injury, its severity or if it was suffered in training or against Southampton. Hopefully, the mild is the key word in there but with a long history of problems, it is always a worry that mild could turn in to months for Theo Walcott.
Walcott has started every league game for Arsenal and has faired reasonably well as the teams wingers go. With the congested fixture schedule starting, with the team playing Premier League, Champions League and League Cup games approaching, it could hurt if Theo misses too much time.
Alex Iwobi draws in for him and hopefully is set to recapture his bright form he began with last season.
