Welbeck could return from his long-term knee injury in January, manager Arsene Wenger said on Friday.

There was some optimism back in August that Welbeck would be able to return before the end of the calendar year, but it appears that's out of the question now. Additionally, because he's been out for so long, it'll take some time to work up his match fitness after he's recovered from the injury. With Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud and Lucas Perez available to play up front when fit, it's tough to see how Welbeck will get considerable playing time to make a fantasy impact.

FPL Barometer: Giroud Leading the Gunners

Olivier Giroud has a goal and two assists in his last two matches, and with Danny Welbeck's knee injury, the Frenchman has no competition for playing time in Sunday's season-finale.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Welbeck is progressing faster than expected in his recovery from a serious knee injury, and he could return in four-to-five months, manager Arsene Wenger said on Wednesday.

Welbeck wasn't expected to return until February, so while he's still out for the short term, he could make an impact in the second half of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Welbeck will require surgery on his injured knee, and he will be out for nine months, Arsenal announced Wednesday.

Welbeck will miss this summer's European Championships and quite a bit of the next Premier League season, putting a huge dent in Arsenal's attacking depth. The Gunners will continue to rely on Olivier Giroud, though they will likely try to bring in another forward to help fill the void.

Welbeck's status for this summer's European Championships are up in the air after coming off in the 21st minute with a knee injury, Jamie Jackson of The Guardian reports.

Welbeck, who relatively recently returned to the squad after a lengthy layoff due to a knee injury, had led the line for the Gunners while Olivier Giroud lay fallow. Alongside Jamie Vardy, Welbeck was in line to contribute up front for England at the Euros, but now his health is certainly a factor as to his availability for the tournament.

Welbeck scored a goal as a substitute in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Norwich City.

After a number of starts in a row, Welbeck has been relegated to the bench of late, but that didn't stop him from being the key element to unlock Norwich's defense. Welbeck has four goals and two assists in 10 Premier League appearances and has done more than enough to supplant a struggling Olivier Giroud in the starting XI for the final two matches as his pace can give opposing back lines nightmares.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Welbeck rattled off five shots and created an assist on his lone key pass of Sunday's draw with Crystal Palace.

Welbeck aggressively looked for his own shot Sunday, but his greatest contribution came when he wrestled the ball away from an opponent and chipped a pass that Alexis Sanchez nodded home. Welbeck has heen in good form, with two goals and two assists in his last five domestic appearances, and he will look to get back in the goal column when Arsenal face West Brom on Thursday.

Welbeck tallied an assist in Saturday's 3-3 draw with West Ham.

Welbeck struggled to put his mark on the match as a striker, but was able to nicely play the ball to Laurent Koscielny for the equalizer in the 70th minute. His pace and form of late has kept Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott relegated to the bench as he has three goals and an assist in seven matches since returning from an operation on his knee.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Welbeck sat out training to rest as England continue to prepare for the upcoming friendly versus Germany, the Mirror reports.

It sounds as if nothing is physically wrong with the striker, and that the rest day was simply part of a program the national team agreed upon with Arsenal. As such, Welbeck could be available for Saturday's match, though it is unclear if he will be included in the starting lineup.
