Arsenal boss Wenger admits Walcott injury concern

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has an injury concern for Theo Walcott after victory over Bolton Wanderers.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has an injury concern for Theo Walcott after victory over Bolton Wanderers.

Wenger's joy was tempered by a knee injury to Walcott. The England winger limped off in injury time after pulling up on the halfway line with no-one around him.

Walcott is now a doubt for Wednesday's Champions League clash against Olympiacos and next Sunday's north London derby at Tottenham.

"I don't really know what happened with Theo," Wenger said.

"I thought it was a classic hamstring injury but it is not.

"He felt a sharp pain in his knee. I don't know what the diagnosis will be but it was completely surprising. I don't know if he will have scan tonight. I will have to speak to the medical staff."
