Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger has been left "surprised and worried" after Theo Walcott suffered a freak injury while walking.

The speedy winger’s right knee locked as he left the training pitch on Friday.

Walcott only recently returned to action after a long-term shoulder injury which had ruled him out for nearly four months.

He was due to face Newcastle United today before linking up with the England U-21 squad.

"Walcott got injured today in training," Wenger told the club's official website. "We have to test it, he has a scan on his knee today.

"We are surprised and worried. He was in very good form coming back and that is very bad news for us and for England.

"For the rest of the season might be too long, but he's out of tomorrow's squad and he could be out of the England squad.

"He locked his knee so it could be a cartilage problem. He did it walking back from training. He was fully normal during training but maybe it only came out when he stopped.

He added: "Theo locked his knee when he was walking back from training, so it could be a cartilage.

"Training was fully normal and maybe he has done it in training and it came out when he stopped.

"We have to see how he responds today and I hope it's not really serious."
