Gunners set for offensive boost
It had been hoped Walcott would play a part in the visit to Old Trafford, where Arsenal were beaten 1-0 by Manchester United on Sunday.
But the England international's recovery from an abdominal injury sustained in September has been slowed and a late November return is now being targeted.
Podolski has not played for Arsenal since picking up a hamstring injury in the Champions League qualification play-off victory over Fenerbahce of Turkey in August.
Since then the Gunners have lost just three times in all competitions with striker Olivier Giroud and midfielder Aaron Ramsey scoring the lion-share of Arsenal's goals.
With the international break now upon us, the Germany forward is back in training at Arsenal and is expected to make a come-back shortly after the domestic calendar resumes.
Arsenal next play in the Premier League at home to Southampton on 23 November and away to Cardiff City on 30 November, with a Champions League clash with Marseille at Emirates Stadium sandwiched in between.
While an Arsenal source told SportsDirect News the match against Southampton at least is likely to be "too early" for Podolski, all three fixtures will certainly come too soon for Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The midfielder is to complete his recovery from knee injury no earlier than the beginning of December, when Arsenal play at home to Hull City on 4 December and Everton on 8 December
