Theo Walcott and Nacho Monreal are likely to miss Saturday’s Premier League game against Sunderland, according to a reliable journalist.
Ben Dinnery is an injury data analyst for ESPN and contributes to Sky Sports, and he revealed on his personal Twitter account that the two players are set to miss the Premier League clash.
If they do miss the game, they should be back for the Champions League game on Tuesday or the Premier League clash with Tottenham on Sunday.

The two players would be a huge loss for Arsenal, on the back of striker Lucas Perez being ruled out until December following Tuesday’s EFL Cup tie with Reading.
Walcott has been in the form of his life this season, with five goals in nine Premier League games and three goals in two Champions League matches.
Nacho Monreal has started all nine of Arsenal’s Premier league matches this season, in a campaign that has only seen them concede nine goals.
Arsenal haven’t lost since the opening game of the season against Liverpool, and are currently behind Manchester City at the top of the table on goal difference.
Arsenal face Sunderland in the Premier League on Saturday, followed by Ludogorets in the Champions League on Tuesday before they host rivals Tottenham in the Premier League the following Sunday.
