If the disheartening loss to Aston Villa last weekend wasn’t enough to deal with, Arsenal have now been dealt another massive blow to their title challenge as an integral part of their starting XI has been ruled out for up to 12 weeks!
Theo Walcott dislocated his right shoulder last night and could be out for 12 weeks in a devastating double blow for England and Arsenal.
He was carried off near the end of the final practice session in the Olympic Stadium in Berlin and will have the injury assessed on Wednesday by England’s medical staff. It will be decided if he should have an operation to ‘pin’ the shoulder. (Daily Mail)
Walcott has been a breath of fresh air when he’s been on the pitch, so it really is a shame to hear that he could be out for up to three months. But considering how much trouble this shoulder has given him in recent years, it might make sense to pin the shoulder or let it heal fully.
What do Arsenal supporters think of the news? Can it really get any worse?
