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.

Walcott (groin) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against West Brom and Wednesday's match against Southampton, manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Friday.

Walcott picked up the injury while on international duty, shortly after returning from a torn ACL. While he presumably has a shot to play Dec. 6 against Stoke City, he's likely still a few weeks away from starting.

Walcott will miss Saturday's match against Manchester United after picking up a groin injury while on duty with England, reports the Daily Mail.

Walcott has just returned from a long period out of action due to a knee injury. He is expected to miss this week's game due to a tight groin.

Walcott made a late appearance in Sunday's loss at Swansea, selected in the 78th minute. He didn't register a shot or put anything on the scoresheet.

Arsenal must feel pretty good about Walcott's health, as the game was played with steady rain and the pitch was in poor shape in the second half. Walcott's return to the starting lineup can't be far off.

Walcott is expected to be called to the England squad to face Slovenia and Scotland, reports the Daily Mail.

Walcott hasn't started a game since injuring his knee in January, and hasn't played for England in more than a year.

Walcott and Arsenal are in discussions about a new contract, reports Sky Sports.

The midfielder just signed a new three-and-a-half year contract in January 2013. He will still have more than a year remaining on that agreement in January, but Arsenal wants to get the ball rolling on negotiations to tie him to the club for a longer period.
