Welbeck could miss Liverpool showdown 

Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck could miss this weekend's Premier League showdown with rivals Liverpool, according to the Mirror. The former Manchester United man is struggling with a knee injury he picked up on international duty for England, so may well miss the huge clash at the Emirates. 

There's no doubt about it, Gunners fans will be hoping to see Welbeck prove his fitness for the game in what looks set to be a huge match in the race to secure Champions League qualification. 

Walcott set for striker role 

And Welbeck's Arsenal teammate Theo Walcott may well take his place in the starting XI for the Three Lions this evening. 

In fact, it has been claimed by the Telegraph that the versatile forward will start alongside Tottenham man Harry Kane in attack as Roy Hodgson's side prepare to take on Italy in Turin.
