London – Arsenal’s England internationals Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been ruled out for around three weeks due to injury, manager Arsene Wenger revealed on Thursday.
“We hope they are light injuries, but they are out until after the international break,” Wenger told the Arsenal website.
“Nothing has changed since after the game. They are out, but the scans are today — it’s 48 hours afterwards.”
Arsenal’s first home game after the international break is a trip to West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on November 21. They are currently second in the table.
Walcott and Oxlade-Chamberlain join Mikel Arteta (ankle), Aaron Ramsey (hamstring), David Ospina (shoulder), Danny Welbeck (knee), Jack Wilshere (ankle) and Tomas Rosicky (knee) on the list of injured Arsenal players.
