Walcott's goal late in the first half turned out to be the difference in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over Leicester City.

Walcott could have easily finished with 2-3 markers, but he didn't do his best with some other first-half chances. The Gunners sent him off in the 73rd minute, a nod towards the fact that Walcott isn't in top form or condition yet. But no one is going to complain about three goals over four matches, Walcott's current log.

February 10, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Walcott is in the starting XI for Tuesday's match against Leicester City.

Walcott will start opposite Alexis Sanchez, who returns from a hamstring injury, giving the Gunners incredible speed out wide for the likes of Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil. Walcott isn't likely to play 90, but he can do damage in even limited time.

Walcott netted a second-half goal during Sunday's 5-0 win over Aston Villa, which marked his first Premier League start since New Year's Day of 2014.

Walcott completed an arduous comeback from last year's ACL tear by scoring Sunday, which followed his goal in FA Cup play last weekend. In those two appearances, Walcott's world-class speed appeared uninhibited, but his all-around game understandably showed room for sharpening. Nonetheless, with two goals in two starts since returning, Walcott should be encouraged ahead of next weekend's match versus rivals Tottenham. Whether he's shown enough to warrant a starting birth for that match remains to be seen; however, his short-term involvement could ultimately rely on the fitness levels of Alexis Sanchez (hamstring) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (groin), who usually occupy similar wide attacking positions.

Walcott is getting his first Premier League start this season Sunday against Aston Villa.

With Alexis Sanchez sidelined with a hamstring injury, Walcott will get the start on the wing, with plenty of players ready to feed him, as Mesut Ozil will start alongside Santi Cazorla.

Walcott logged 76 minutes in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Hull City, his first start since tearing his ACL last January. He finished with three shots (one on target) for his stint.

Walcott looked like a player nowhere near top form; he managed a couple of solid scoring chances but did little with the opportunity. It's going to take a few games for sharpening before we consider Walcott a fantasy factor.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that Walcott (groin) is back in full training and could be available Sunday against Liverpool.

Given the long layoff following a torn ACL, and then a groin issue, it's highly unlikely Walcott starts any match until 2015.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that Walcott (groin) has trained for two days, but he will not play Saturday against Newcastle.

Walcott suffered the injury over the international break in November, and while he has returned to training, he is likely to be considered questionable to play Dec. 21 against Liverpool ahead of the condensed holiday schedule.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Walcott is still feeling pain in his groin and he will not play Saturday against Stoke City or Tuesday in the Champions League against Galatasaray.

Walcott was sidelined for nine months after tearing his ACL and then picked up the groin strain while on international duty last month. Wenger said he had an injection Friday to reduce the inflammation, but he remains without a clear timetable for return.
