Arsenal Suffer Double Injury Blow

Both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo limped off in Arsenal’s Capital One Cup fourth round tie against Sheffield Wednesday.



Oxlade-Chamberlain fell to the turf in the opening minutes of the game at Hillsborough and was nursing his hamstring as he limped off.

The winger looked distraught as he left the pitch, although he reportedly felt a ‘tightness’ in his hamstring and the injury was described as precautionary.

He was replaced by Walcott, who was then also forced to leave the field with a calf problem.

Arsenal are already short of bodies on the right flank after Aaron Ramsey suffered a pulled hamstring in the Champions League win over Bayern Munich.

The Welshman is not expected to return until after the next international break, which puts him in line to face West Brom on November 21.

He will certainly miss games against Swansea and Bayern Munich, as well as the north London derby on November 8.

If Oxlade-Chamberlain and Walcott spend time on the sidelines Arsene Wenger could turn to one of his younger players to start on the right.

Joel Campbell, Alex Iwobi and Ismael Bennacer are all candidates to fill that void after they featured against Sheffield Wednesday.
