Arsene Wenger had hit back at critics who claimed he has mislead Arsenal fans over the extent of Danny Welbeck’s injury.
Welbeck, now in his second season with the Gunners, has been ruled out until Christmas with a knee problem.
On August27, Wenger told the media that Welbeck was “progressing well”.
When asked about Welbeck’s health in his press on Thursday ahead of the Stoke game, Wenger told the room:
I am surprised that people accused me of lying. I did not know Welbeck had had a bad setback. I gave you the information I had. I did not lie to you.
