Welbeck (knee) says he cannot wait to return to action for Arsenal, while he continues to rehab his injury following his operation.

Welbeck's recover process has been slow and steady, as the club doesn't want to rush anything with his injury. However, he did return to the stands this week and has been able to watch the matches, which has given him a different perspective on his team and the game.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that Welbeck (knee) could return "around the New Year."

Wenger previously said that Welbeck was targeting a return around Christmas, so the new timetable isn't drastically different. Given his inability to play so far this season, it'll likely take Welbeck quite some time to get his match fitness back.

Welbeck (knee) will be sidelined at least until Christmas, manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday.

Welbeck was reportedly close to returning but had a setback in one of the last steps of his rehab, which then prompted him to have another surgery. He was unlikely to break into the starting lineup in Premier League matches, but he gave Arsenal solid depth to use in cup matches, which now won't be the case for a number of months.

Welbeck (knee) will be out for a number of months after undergoing knee surgery this week.

Welbeck has been out since suffering the injury back in April, and while there was a hope he could return after the international break, a step up in training caused renewed pain. He was unlikely to get many first-team starts ahead of Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott, but this will only push his return even further back.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that Welbeck (knee) is on track to return after the upcoming international break.

Welbeck has yet to play this season due to the ailment, though he's likely to have a minimal role even when he is fit, with Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alexis Sanchez all likely to get playing time over him.

Welbeck (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's match against Crystal Palace.

Welbeck is reportedly closing in on a return, so while he won't be available this weekend, he may be on Aug. 24 against Liverpool. That being said, with Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott fit, his path for playing time is a bit blocked.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Welbeck is not far away from returning from his knee injury, but he will not play Sunday against West Ham.

Welbeck's role is a bit uncertain given that Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott are both fit, while Alexis Sanchez is also likely to only miss the opener. Being fourth on the depth chart is certainly not ideal for fantasy purposes, and while he has plenty of upside when he starts, that isn't likely to happen a lot.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Welbeck has been ruled out for the Community Shield on Sunday because of his knee injury.

The news isn't surprising, as manager Arsene Wenger had already stated that Welbeck was unlikely to be fit for the start of the Premier League season. Arsenal have plenty of cover, as Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott are both fit, and both are likely to keep Welbeck's playing time limited this season in league matches.
