Arsenal sweat on Welbeck injury but good news for Walcott and Gibbs

There is not a lot of news coming out about the injury picked up by the Arsenal and England forward Danny Welbeck last night, other than that the 24-year old tweaked his knee in a challenge with the Lithuania keeper late on in the game.

GOOD news for Arsenal is BAD news for Chile and France

THe second night of the round of games in the current international break is all done and dusted, with Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger happy and relieved that the various Gunners involved have come through unscathed. In fact, they were hardly used. Only David Ospina completed a game and he kept a clean sheet as Colombia put six past Bahrain.

Arsenal bemused as Liverpool get special England treatment!

Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger have never been very comfortable about our star players heading off on international duty at crucial points during the season and we have good reason.

Why England injury woes could spell BIG trouble for Arsenal

Maybe I am being a bit pessimistic here, but with all the injury problems that Arsenal have had to deal with in recent years, who can blame me? Arsene Wenger may also regret his words last week when he said in an off-the-cuff statement that the England boss Roy Hodgson could do what he liked in his use of Theo Walcott.

Arsenal star on why Gibbs should shine for England

It seems as though a decent run in the Arsenal team, mainly because he has managed to stay reasonable injury free for the last year or so, has really paid off for Kieran Gibbs, and for the Gunners as well of course as he is now clearly our first choice left back.

These 3 internationals MUST shine for Arsenal FIRST

There are three Arsenal players, at least, that will return to north London after this international break a little disappointed about their lack of play for their respective countries. And it could work in the Gunners’ favour if it makes Lukas Podolski, Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain realise that the best way to remedy the situation is to sparkle regularly at club level.
