Theo Walcott looks set to miss
the rest of Arsenal's season after damaging his hamstring in the
0-0 draw against Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday.
The winger pulled up in the second half at The Emirates and,
despite trying to play on, was forced to depart.
"It looks like a serious hamstring," manager Arsene Wenger
said. "First we assessed the hamstring, he wanted to go on and
stay on the pitch and I think he should have gone off straight
away because the second time it was a real hamstring [injury].
"I think now for him it will be tough to come back before
the end of the season. It is usually 21 days [minimum]."
Walcott is expected to be part of England's Euro 2012 squad
for Poland and Ukraine and Wenger said he expected his player to
recover in time for the June 8-July 1 championship.
"He should be OK to play for England - he just will have a
good rest. But I don't think he will be ready to play for us."
Arsenal, who are trying to secure a top-four finish in the
Premier League, have three matches left this season.
