Arsenal's Theo Walcott out of Carling Cup final

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott will miss Sunday's Carling Cup final against Birmingham after spraining his ankle in the 1-0 victory over Stoke.

Walcott twisted his left ankle in the turf after a tackle from Dean Whitehead and left the field on a stretcher.

"It is an ankle sprain - he is out of the next game for sure,"
manager Arsene Wenger stated.

Wenger said captain Cesc Fabregas will be assessed on Thursday
after suffering a hamstring injury in the first half.

The Gunners boss added: "Fabregas has a hamstring problem. We will assess that tomorrow. It is impossible to see how serious it is tonight. We will know tomorrow.
