Arsenal has suffered another massive blow as injured Danny Welbeck return date has been delayed.
Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger confirmed the 25-year-old is not expected back in action until February.
Welbeck has been out since April after undergoing knee surgery making him miss half of the season.
The England international was originally scheduled to return as early as September before the date was revised to Christmas.
“He is still not available because of a bone bruising,” Wenger said. “That deteriorated and it is a big blow to us because we cannot rotate.”
Arsenal will have to be forced to buy in players in January if truly Arsenal are seriously going for a major title push this season.
