Arsenal FC could be without Theo Walcott for their next UEFA Champions League F game against SSC Napoli on 1 October. The England international forward sat out his team's 3-1 Premier League victory over Stoke City FC on Sunday but manager Arsène Wenger is not certain as to how long the 24-year-old will be sidelined.

"We hope we haven't lost Walcott for a long time," said Wenger, whose side went top of the Premier League with their weekend win. "He has a muscular abdominal problem but I don't know how serious it is. Is it a question of days? I hope so. He had a little problem before the Marseille game and it became a bit worse. It is a bit mysterious because we don't really know what it is."

The north London club take on West Bromwich Albion FC in the League Cup on Wednseday and visit UEFA Europa League contenders Swansea City AFC on Saturday before Napoli come to town.

John Obi Mikel was very much the name on the lips of all Chelsea FC fans at the weekend after the midfielder scored his first goal for the club in 185 matches. The 26-year-old popped up to score Chelsea's second goal in their 2-0 victory against fellow London club Fulham FC on Saturday evening, but he was keen to play down the significance of his strike.

"This game was all about winning and we got the three points, and my goal was just a bonus," said Mikel. "But I am pretty happy about it. It has been a long time and the guys have been killing me about it. They say you go to the national team and score but you don't score for Chelsea so it was good for me to get my first Premier League goal. I have scored in the FA Cup a couple of times. I practice scoring in training sometimes but I don't get into the positions often. Gone are the days when I go onto the pitch thinking it might be me today, for me it is about the team."
