London:

English football club Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger on Friday said that midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and forward Theo Walcott (calf) will be sidelined due to injuries for more than three weeks.

Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring) Walcott (calf) suffered injuries during their their 0-3 loss to Sheffield Wednesday during a League Cup contest at the Hillsborough Stadium.

Both are out for Saturday's game and until at least after the international break so they are out as well for England. I believe the quickest back will be Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott might be a fraction longer.

The England internationals duo joined Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck, Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and David Ospina on the sidelines.

"We have two kind of injured players -- the players who will be coming back after Christmas, which is Rosicky, Wilshere and Welbeck and we have the short-term injured players -- most of them like Arteta, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain should be back after the international break," French Wenger said.

Arsenal play Swansea City in an away match of the English Premier League (EPL) on Saturday. They will travel to Germany for their second leg Champions League group stage encounter against Bayern Munich on November 4.
