It has been confirmed that Theo Walcott will miss the rest of Arsenal’s season as he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury against Tottenham in the FA Cup.
This comes as a big blow to Arsenal as the side look to mount a serious run in the Premier League, Champions league and FA Cup. With our already limited options in attack, Arsene Wenger is now under pressure to make an attacking signing this January transfer window.
The Arsenal players have taken to Twitter to share their support to Theo:
So sad for #Walcott , i know what is like! We will support you till u get back! U will be badly missed!
