Arsene Wenger has set a return day for forward Danny Welbeck of three weeks after the forward picked up an injury against Chelsea on Sunday (via The Metro).
It was tough to see Danny Welbeck leave the field on Sunday. The forward had put in a good performance against Chelsea put was forced off with a groin strain.
It’s certainly not the first injury Danny Welbeck has picked up during his career at Arsenal and if history is anything to go by, it won’t be the last.
Now, Arsene Wenger has set a return date for Danny Welbeck of three weeks with Wenger citing the Watford match on 14 October as a potential comeback date.
“He won’t be available for us or for England during the international break,” Wenger said in his pre-match press conference. “His target is Watford.”

Welbeck is currently Arsenal’s top scorer this seasons with three goals in all competitions, more than he managed during the entirety of last season in the Premier League.
It’s good to see that Danny Welbeck’s injury isn’t as bad as first feared. The Englishman has worked incredibly hard to get back to full fitness and is playing well for the team once again. He’s a hugely useful squad player and his absence will be felt.
