Arsene Wenger has not completely ruled Theo Walcott out of Sunday’s crucial game against West Brom.
The England international tweaked his hamstring in the home game against Chelsea then, for some reason, declared himself ok/was allowed back on only to double tweak it a few minutes later. It was thought he’d miss the final games of the season but the manager opened the door to his participation.
Speaking at his final press conference of the season, Wenger said of Walcott, “He will have a test. I don’t know yet if he will be included in the squad or not. It is possible.”
There are also reportedly injury doubts over Squillaci and Park (meh) and Andre Santos (come on Andre!) but a decision will be made about them closer to Sunday.
The boss also revealed that Barcary Sagna is set to have surgery on his broken fibula tonight, so let’s wish him luck and a speedy and successful recovery (and that no big twat stamps on his leg for no good reason).
