Danny Welbeck: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Welbeck (thigh) is in the starting XI for Saturday's match against Spurs.

Welbeck has been sidelined since the turn of the year, but he'll get the starting nod on his return, pushing Theo Walcott back to the bench. He had four shots, with one on target, in the reverse fixture back on Sept. 27.

Welbeck is training with the first team and expected to be available for Saturday's match against Spurs, manager Arsene Wenger said Friday.

Welbeck was getting consistent playing time before going down with the injury, but with Olivier Giroud fit and playing well, it's unlikely that Welbeck gets a start, and certainly not in his preferred center forward role.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Welbeck is close to a return from this thigh injury, and that he will feature against Spurs on Feb. 7. "He is very close," Wenger said. "He is really, really, really nearly there. He will be available for the Tottenham game."

Given the timeline, Welbeck will not play Sunday against Aston Villa, leaving Olivier Giroud to continue to lead the line.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that Welbeck (thigh) has yet to return fro full training and he will miss at least two more games.

Arsenal play Brighton in the FA Cup on Sunday before taking on Aston Villa on Feb. 1, which opens up the possibility that Welbeck could return Feb. 7 against Spurs. Olivier Giroud will continue to start up front.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that Welbeck (thigh) is still not ready to play, implying he will miss Sunday's match at Manchester City.

Olivier Giroud will likely start up front as the lone striker against a solid City defense, with Welbeck's next opportunities to play coming Jan. 25 against Brighton in the FA Cup and Feb. 1 against Aston Villa in Premier League play.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Welbeck (thigh) will not play Sunday against Stoke City, but he may return Jan. 18 against Manchester City.

Welbeck scored against West Ham in his last match, which came Dec. 28, though the key was that he was the lone striker up front, as Olivier Giroud was suspended. With the Frenchman now eligible, Welbeck will be pushed back out wide when he does return, a position that he is less comfortable playing.

Welbeck is dealing with a thigh injury and will have a late fitness test ahead of Thursday's match against Southampton, the Daily Mail reports.

Welbeck has seven goals on the season and will be sorely missed if he's ultimately deemed unfit Thursday. He picked up the injury during Sunday's victory over West Ham and is now faced with a short recovery window with the compressed schedule. In his potential absence it's still unclear who exactly would jump into the starting XI, although Yaya Sanogo seems like a viable option if he can overcome his calf injury.
