Arsenal morning news: Mixed injury news for Wenger ahead of Liverpool clash

Theo Walcott

A round up of news stories this morning about Arsenal.

Arsenal star Theo Walcott is reportedly aiming for the Liverpool match as his comeback from injury according to the Daily Star.

Walcott suffered a groin problem, which has kept him out of the side after he’d originally recovered from a knee problem.

On the other hand, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could miss the game after picking up a problem in the weekend win against Newcastle.

The Ox also suffered a similar problem in Arsenal’s Champions League game against Galatasaray last week.

“He got a knock. He’s got a pain in his groin. I took him off quickly. I wanted to take him off, and then he takes the ball and crosses the whole pitch and [after that piece of action] he cannot run anymore,” said Arsene Wenger.

Newcastle defender Mike Williamson says the Gunners were simply too good as they won 4-1 over the weekend with Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla both scoring twice.

“It’s a tough place to come, and we didn’t perform to the levels we did last week (against Chelsea), and that was frustrating. But Arsenal are a fantastic team with fantastic individuals,” said Williamson.
