Arsenal’s duo, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are expected to miss the Gunners’ next three games after both players limped off the 3-0 League Cup loss to Sheffield Wednesday.
Walcott came off with a calf problem and Oxlade-Chamberlain a hamstring injury.
They are set to miss the next two Premier League ties against Swansea City and Tottenham Hotspur and a Champions League trip to Bayern Munich.
According to the BBC, early indications are that the injury to Walcott – who replaced Oxlade-Chamberlain after just five minutes on Tuesday – is slightly worse than his team-mate’s.
Wenger made nine changes for the 3-0 defeat but still included Olivier Giroud, Per Mertesacker, Mathieu Flamini, Petr Cech, Mathieu Debuchy, Kieran Gibbs and Calum Chambers.
The Gunners boss said after the game the injuries to the two forwards were a “big blow”.
“We are short now with the injuries,” added the 66-year-old Frenchman, who has six other first-team players out.
