Arsenal could get a big boost for their match at Liverpool on Sunday (Watch, 11 a.m. ET, NBCSN and online via Live Extra) as Theo Walcott may return to Arsene Wenger’s squad.

Walcott, 25, has played just twice for the Gunners this season after suffering a serious knee injury last January. However after making his long-awaited return in November, Walcott suffered a groin injury while training with England and has been out ever since.

Speaking in his press conference ahead of the trip to Anfield, Wenger was still not sure about Walcott’s fitness but confirmed he is due to return to full training in the coming days.

“He [Walcott] is back in training today [Thursday], but only today,” Wenger said. “I might take him [to Liverpool], I don’t know yet until he is back to full training. Let’s see.”

Nacho Monreal and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may also return for the Gunners, but Arsenal still have plenty of injury worries as David Ospina, Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey and Laurent Koscielny remain out.
