Welbeck could miss Saturday's match against Liverpool because of the knee injury he sustained during England's win over Lithuania on Friday, the Daily Mirror reports.

Welbeck returned to the club to begin treatment on the injury and will miss Tuesday's international friendly against Italy. If he is unable to play against Liverpool, Theo Walcott could get the start in his place, if he returns from the Italy match fit.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Welbeck suffered a knee injury during England's Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania on Friday and will likely not play in Tuesday's friendly against Italy, the Daily Mirror reports.

Welbeck scored a goal in the qualifier, and if he is unable to play in Turin, he'll certainly be considered an injury doubt for next weekend's Premier League match against Liverpool.

Welbeck was credited with an assist on one of Olivier Giroud's two goals during Arsenal's 2-1 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

Welbeck was clearly trying to score on his own, but Giroud was able to change the direction of the ball and get it passed Tim Krul. The assist was Welbeck's third of the season and first since Nov. 9 against Swansea. Welbeck is much better when he plays up front in the center of the attack, but with Giroud manning that slot now, and playing exceptionally well, Welbeck will continue to be forced out wide.

Welbeck scored Arsenal's winning goal at Old Trafford on Monday, knocking Manchester United out of the FA Cup with a 2-1 victory.

Welbeck was active in front of goal, poking home a poor back pass by the United defense. Welbeck was substituted off later in the match to receive the appreciation of the visiting Arsenal fans.

Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott are starting in the attacking positions, with Welbeck joined on the bench by Olivier Giroud.

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.
