Stoke City midfielder Rory Delap is happy he didn't seriously injure Arsenal ace Theo Walcott in Saturday's 2-1 win.

Walcott was carried off, falling awkwardly after being tripped by former Southampton teammate Delap and damaging a shoulder.

"I'm just glad the injury isn't as bad as it first looked," Delap said upon hearing there was no dislocation. "Theo's a good lad."
