Walcott was all set to start in Sunday's 3-1 win over Stoke at the Emirates before picking up an injury in the warm-up.

And Wenger said: "He had an abdominal muscle problem, I don't really know what it is.

"Nobody can tell me whether it is just a question of days.

"He had a test before the game and I decided to play him but he had a little problem before the Marseille game (last week) and it then became a bit worse.

"It's a bit mysterious, because we don't really know what it is."

Arsenal are away to West Brom in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday before they travel to Swansea for a Premier League encounter on Saturday.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
