Update – Wenger gives latest on more injured players after West Brom win
Arsene Wenger has revealed there are a couple more injury worries after the 1-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion.
The Gunners returned to winning ways on boxing day after being frustrated for much of the game by Tony Pulis’ stubborn side.
Olivier Giroud’s late goal was some relief for Arsene Wenger but the Arsenal manager has revealed there were two concerns on the injury front to mar the win.
Theo Walcott was not named in the 18-man squad which played on Monday and according to Wenger, the forward is now nursing a calf injury.
“Theo has a small calf problem, but a very small one.” the Gunners boss said after the win over the Baggies
Kieran Gibbs, who was making a rare start in place of Nacho Monreal, failed to last the entire game because of another injury blow.
“It’s a kick. I don’t know how bad it is, but it’s a kick on the knee.” Wenger added
