Arsenal has received an injury boost with the news that Danny Welbeck will be back in the team by Christmas.
The England striker has been injured since the end of last season, and there were fears that the player could have missed the whole of this season. This will be great news for Arsenal as they are currently short on striking power and would welcome the news.
Arsene Wenger made the announcement in a press conference before the weekend matches. The manager said that Welbeck is a valuable member of the team and that his return will add a much-needed boost at the front for Arsenal. He said initially it was expected that the player would be out until next April, but a recent test has revealed that the player is healing faster than expected and that he will be back by Christmas.
On the other hand, Arsenal will be missing Aaron Ramsey and Alex Iwobi until the next international break. Both players were injured in the defeat against Liverpool and will need at least 2-3 weeks treatment before being able to play again in the first team. He said that the injuries are down to the fact that the players did not have enough time to recover after their participation at the Euros.
