Welbeck gives Arsenal BIG injury boost! May face Liverpool

Although it looked like Arsenal had been hit by the old enemy of the injury curse during this current international break, we are now hearing that we might have gotten away with it after all. Our England international striker has been sent back to the club after picking up a knock to his knee during the Euro qualifier over Lithuania last Friday and it seemed as though he would be missing a bit of domestic action for the Gunners as well.

But now a Daily Mail report has revealed that the medical staff behind the scenes at the Emirates are actually hopeful that Welbeck will not miss any time at all. He is apparently responding well to the treatment on his knee and will undergo a late fitness test this week to see whether the former Man United man could face his old rivals from Merseyside, perhaps from the bench if not from the start.

Even if Welbeck does not win this race against time, it seems as though it would be the only match he would be unavailable for as the injury is clearly a minor one. With seven Premier League games after the Liverpool clash and the small matter of a Wembley FA cup semi-final against Reading to consider, this injury update is great news for Arsenal fans and Wenger.

  1. I learnt Diaby, a delight to watch when fit, is back. Also that he played against Brentford in a friendly match today.
    I am happy for him.

  2. Arsenal XI beat Brentford 4-0. Wilshere, Crowley, Iwobi scored; Diaby, Arteta, Wilshere, Debuchy played 45 mins today

    1. I just can’t believe remy scored that sh*t goal with 5 minutes to go I still can’t believe the keeper didn’t save that. We would be 5 points back and Chelsea would have to come to the emirates *sigh*

  3. No Stevie G and Skrtel to STAMP-EDE our tricky bunch or STAMP their authority on our players.

  4. Brilliant news if its true, welbeck alongside sanchez will be most effective against liverpool. We must play the pressing game and theres no one better then danny at that and to be honest he’s on form he more then deserves his place. Lets see how walcott does today big game for him becuase not only is his place at arsenal under scrutiny but also for England he needs a big performance.

  5. A rare, but pleasant sight to see at the Physioroom.com in a long long while. Happy me!

  6. I don’t know where the writer of this article is getting the feeling that reading will b a walk-over, pls be careful, we all know u can’t bet ur money on arsena, if we turn up, we wil scatter them… Hope welbz is fit, somehow u cannot remove welbz from d startn line up

    1. @fed-up gunner
      Judging by the way they were all over Bradford for 90+, we had better take them seriously…

  7. Must to admit that for the rest of season the first and second choice in right wing might be welbeck and chambo. Walcott must work really really hard, otherwise it’s time to say goodbye for him in the end of season.

  8. That means our sick bay is empty since the landlord (Diaby) is out. How I wish Diaby has been fit, maybe, just maybe, we could have been better than this long before. He was our Yaya T. Ask Liverpool how he made them to suffer in that our 2-0 win at Anfield. It’s a shame that such a talent could not exhibit his talent regularly on the field of play. You can imagine how he is feeeling.

  9. D article in last para says ‘and the small matter of a Wembley FA cup semi-final against Reading ‘ . Did we really forget d Monaco incident so sooooon!?!?!?

    1. In the context of this sentence “small matter” is a colloquial term with an ironic twist meaning “important”. The writer is not underestimating Reading FC.

  10. I m starting to wonder that what if diaby gets to play a few minutes in the premier league and impresses the manager! That may tempt Wenger to extent his contract somewhat!
