Arsenal's Theo Walcott could be out for FOUR weeks

Theo Walcott fears he could be out for up to four weeks as he prepares to go for a scan on Monday on suspected strained knee ligaments.

Walcott was showered by coins from some Tottenham supporters when he was stretchered off towards the end of Arsenal’s 2-0 FA Cup third round tie at the Emirates.

Arsenal chief Arsene Wenger admitted on Saturday that he faces a couple of weeks out, but he may be on the sidelines a little bit longer after an initial assessment earlier on Sunday.

Walcott has been in fine form since returning to the Arsenal team from injury for the 6-3 defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last month.

He scored twice in that game and followed it up with a double at West Ham in the 3-1 victory and another in the win at Cardiff.

Walcott started Saturday's Cup tie against north London rivals Tottenham up front, but Arsenal ended the game with ten men because they had already used three substitutes when he was injured.

The injured knee is sore and he will head for a scan on Monday, but the earliest indications are that he will miss some important games.

Arsenal have a break before they play Aston Villa at Villa Park on January 13, before they go on to play Fulham and Southampton in the Barclays Premier League before the end of the month.

Wenger will be able to get by without him, but Arsenal will need him back for the tough games coming up with Liverpool (Feb 8) and Manchester United (Feb 12).

They also have the Champions League second round first leg against Bayern Munich coming up at the Emirates on Feb 19 before the return in the Allianz-Arena on March 11.

Get well soon Theo, the team needs you!
This might be a blessing in disguise - for Wenger to buy a striker this transfer window ...hopefully he will!
