With Arsenal largely healthy, Theo Walcott has seen little playing time over the past month.
Early on in his return to the squad, it was easy to attribute Walcott's lack of playing time to Arsene Wenger's new-found religion when it comes to monitoring his players to prevent new/recurring injuries. Walcott has now been healthy for long enough that his time on the bench now seems more like a conscious choice by Wenger rather than health-related caution. Since returning in earnest in early January, Walcott has started exactly three matches (two in the Premier League and one in the FA Cup). When you look at the opposition (Leicester City, Aston Villa and Brighton), they look like the matches you give to a rotation player to keep him fresh and rest the starter. It wouldn't be a surprise to start seeing some Walcott transfer (or at least loan) rumors starting to pop up if he continues to sit on the bench while healthy. Mar 10 - 2:52 PM
