Danny Welbeck is unlikely to face Swansea on Monday night as he recovers from a knee problem.

Thought to have been picked up in training, the forward has a swollen knee and after the game against Hull on Monday night, Arsene Wenger said that he expected him to be back against his old side, Manchester United, when the Gunners travel to Old Trafford on 17th May but he also mentioned that he could make the Swansea game.

It now seems as if that will not happen as the manager told Arsenal.com

“Welbeck is doing better but he is still not in training, he has missed now more than a week. There is no major damage but we have to see how it progresses over the next two or three days.”

Arsenal will also be without Mathieu Debuchy who has a hamstring problem, Mikel Arteta who is still ‘short‘ and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has returned to training but is not ready to be involved.
