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.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
