Arsenal's injury curse hit again yesterday as it was revealed that new signing Danny Welbeck has picked up a knock during training with the England squad.
The Gunners signed Welbeck from Manchester United on transfer deadline day as a replacement for Olivier Giroud, who has been ruled out until December at least with a fractured tibia.
Three games into the league season, it's time for the first international break with England taking on Norway in a friendly and then beginning their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign against Switzerland.
England manager Roy Hodgson confirmed to the media following the training session that Welbeck has picked up a knock but is hopeful that it is a minor injury and that he will be available for at least the tie against Switzerland.
"Unfortunately in training he did manage to receive a knock in the session, but I have been assured he is okay and that it will not rule him out - but obviously I suppose it could happen," the England manager said, as quoted in the Mirror.
Arsene Wenger will be sweating over the fitness of his new striker, who is expected to go straight into the team and Arsenal have a big fixture right after the international break with league champions Manchester City visiting the Emirates.
Meanwhile, United legend David Beckham has admitted his displeasure at the Red Devils for letting Welbeck leave the club to join the north Londoners.
"We always worry about young talent coming through and obviously seeing Danny leaving Manchester United is sad," Beckham said.
"The manager knows what he is doing and is doing what he thinks is best for United."
"I think it is a great signing for Arsenal. But Danny being a young kid and because he has grown through the ranks at United, it is sad to see," the former Real Madrid player added.
