Walcott set to miss Arsenal season kickoff

Arsenal have lost Theo Walcott for the start of the season.

The Sunday Mirror says ­Walcott has undergone an operation on his ankle and must now rest for 10 days.

That puts a question mark against him being fit for the opening match of the ­Premier League campaign against Newcastle at St James' Park.

If Walcott is ruled out of that clash, he will also be absent when England take on Holland in a friendly at Wembley the following week.
