Arsenal star Danny Welbeck is set to miss at least six games with the club fearing he will be ruled out for a month with the groin injury he suffered at the weekend, according to the Telegraph.

Welbeck limped out of our 0-0 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon after going down clutching his groin following a routine clash in the 73rd minute.


Arsene Wenger confirmed to reporters in his press conference after the game that Welbeck had suffered a groin injury and the initial signs indicated it was a serious problem.

The striker was sent for a scan on Monday and is scheduled to have a second scan today to determine the full extent of the injury but the Telegraph claim Arsenal fear Welbeck will miss at least a month.

The 26-year-old could be ruled out for even longer if today’s second scan confirms a tear so it looks like we’re going to be without Welbeck for the foreseeable future.

Welbeck is certain to miss tomorrow night’s League Cup clash with Doncaster while a month absence would also see him sit out league games with West Brom, Brighton and Watford as well as Europa League games with BATE Borisov and Red Star Belgrade.

The news will come as a huge blow as Danny has started the season in great form having scored three goals in his five appearances so far and looked like he was finally ready to put his injury woes behind him.

Welbeck has been hampered by several injuries since joining the club from Manchester United in 2014 with the forward missing eight months last year with a serious knee injury so this latest set-back will be a huge blow.

Luckily for Arsenal we are not short of attacking options as the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil weren’t in the starting eleven against Chelsea at the weekend.

However, England boss Gareth Soutgate isn’t blessed with such options so he’ll be cursing his luck that Welbeck is now set to miss upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia and Lithuania.
