Arsenal’s Walcott to miss start of season

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott will miss the start of the new Premier League season with the knee injury that has already kept him out for over six months, BBC Sport is reporting.

Walcott ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the 2-0 FA Cup win over arch rivals Tottenham on January 4. He was stretchered off and later informed that the injury would see him miss the rest of the season as well as the World Cup.


Manager Arsene Wenger has now confirmed that he will not return to training until the end of August, which will see him miss Premier League games against Crystal Palace, Everton and Leicester City, as well as both legs of their Champions League qualifying tie.


"We expect him to be back in full training at the end of August. Theo has a good basis, which is what he's working on now," said the Frenchman, who also anticipates Walcott to return to action fairly soon after he makes his training comeback.


And Walcott said: "Things are looking really good and I have worked very hard for the last five months now. The most important thing is getting the strength back and it has pretty much nearly healed - it is just about building up that stability and strength again."
