Arsene Wenger has indicated that he isn't certain about Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's prospects for playing against Liverpool on Sunday after injuring his groin against Newcastle.
The Ox was already playing in an unusual spot last weekend with Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta, and Jack Wilshere all injured. When Oxlade-Chamberlain went off with a groin problem it left Arsenal incredibly thin at the base of midfield with only Mathieu Flamini, the recently returned Francis Coquelin, and 17-year-old Ainsley Maitland-Niles to fill two spots with none offering a great deal going forward. Oxlade-Chamberlain faces a Saturday fitness test before there is any additional clarity on this situation so managers in salary cap leagues with early Saturday transfer deadlines should consider the Ox out unless you have a huge tolerance for risk and/or a great bench.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hasn't been scoring regularly for Arsenal in the Premier League but he scored the opener for England against Scotland on Tuesday.

The Arsenal forward/attacking midfielder faces losing some of his playing time to Theo Walcott who has returned from injury but Tuesday he staked his claim for retaining some of it with the winning goal against Scotland at Celtic Park. Teamed with club teammate Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney in attack, the Arsenal attacker headed home a cross from another Arsenal teammate, Jack Wilshere, for the opening goal of the match. Wayne Rooney went on to score a brace to offset Andrew Robertson's goal for Scotland in a match that ended 3-1 to England.

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain could prove a bargain fantasy option for Arsenal's home game with Hull.

It's rare to see "The Ox" recommended but this has nothing to do with his ability. The Arsenal midfielder is rarely guaranteed game-time, but with Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Tomas Rosicky, Mikael Arteta and Theo Walcott out injured he's a certainty to start against Hull, and he'll be desperate to make the most of the opportunity. With Oxlade-Chamberlain this usually means plenty of incisive running, crossing and shooting, and he's available at a bargain price.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain finally broke out with a significant fantasy performance on the strength of scoring Arsenal's only goal against Spurs in Week 6.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has seen increased playing time thus far in this campaign due to injuries to Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud and others. Thus far, his contributions for both real and fantasy purposes have been modest as he has looked to find an end product at the end of his runs at defenders. His emphatic goal to draw Arsenal even ended that modest run but it may come too late as Theo Walcott is likely to reclaim his starting spot in the not-too-distant future. Bet on only one more start for The Ox against Chelsea to allow Walcott the international break and a slightly less high profile fixture before he returns. On the bright side, he did contribute additional attacking stats (2 SOTs, 3 SCs, 2 CWs) but had his fantasy total limited by picking up a yellow card.

Arsenal were on the front foot for most of the match but needed an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain equalizer to rescue a point from Spurs in the North London Derby.

Arsenal attacked and attacked but it was Spurs who broke through on a Nacer Chadli goal after Mathieu Flamini gave the ball away to Christian Eriksen in his defensive third. Arsenal brought on Alexis Sanchez late and turned up the pressure even further. Huge Lloris made a great diving save and Calum Chambers just missed a screaming volley but it was only Oxlade-Chamberlain's drive off a bouncing ball in the box that found it's way past the French international goalkeeper.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Daniel Sturridge, and Steven Gerrard all trained today ahead of England's next World Cup match with Uruguay on Thursday.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain missed England's 2-1 defeat to Italy as he recovered from a minor knee injury picked up in the Three Lions' friendlies leading up to the tournament. He trained Monday and should be available for England's 2nd group stage match against Uruguay on Thursday. Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge both left the Italy match with minor knocks and should join the Ox in being fit for Thursday.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has resumed light training with the England squad ahead of their World Cup opener against Italy on Saturday.

Oxlade-Chamberlain picked up a knee injury against Ecuador last week and his status on the final roster has been a major question since. Assuming the Arsenal midfielder doesn't suffer a set-back it seems likely that he will remain in the England squad. If Roy Hodgson decides that he is not healthy enough, Tom Cleverley is the man most likely to take the Ox's spot on the roster.
Jun 10 - 12:45 PM

A scan of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's knee has revealed medial collateral ligament that will keep him out from 10 to 21 days which causes a problem for Roy Hodgson.

With nine days between today and England's first group match against Italy on June 14th, Roy Hodgson has a huge decision to make. If the Ox recovers quickly he will hardly be missed. If the recovery time is closer to the 21-day worst case scenario then he would miss the entire group stage and leave England a man down if Hodgson were to keep him on the roster. With Tom Cleverley the seeming alternative, it won't be an easy choice for the England manager.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered an injury in England's friendly against Ecuador earlier today.

The Ox was taken off the pitch and England boss Roy Hodgson admitted in the post-match conference that the team is worried about the youngster. Oxlade-Chamberlain was limping as he left the dressing room after the match and will undergo a scan tomorrow. Jack Wilshere and Luke Shaw were also taken off but Hodgson admitted that was just a precaution and the two are expected to be fully healthy going into the World Cup. Check back for an update on Oxlade-Chamberlain tomorrow.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been ruled out for Arsenal's final match of the season with a groin injury.

The injury is not considered very serious and doesn't require injury. Arsene Wenger stated earlier that Oxlade-Chamberlain should be fully available for England's World Cup squad this summer and that he just needs to get through the next few days. The Ox can be good fantasy pick next season in weekly formats but his lack of consistent playing time makes him a risky option in draft leagues.
May 8 - 6:37 PM

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Tomas Rosicky and Kieran Gibbs all trained ahead of Arsenal's FA Cup semi-final tomorrow.

While not immediately relevant for Premier League purposes it seems reasonable to expect that all three players will be available for Arsenal's remaining league matches barring further injuries. With Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere still out the return of the two midfielders will be critical to the club's depth.

Arsenal were beaten in every phase of the game by Chelsea in a 6-0 drubbing at Stamford Bridge, and the referee sent off the wrong player to add insult to injury.

The match was decided rather early with the third Chelsea goal serving as the point of no return. Eden Hazard took a shot that looked to be going wide but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain laid out in an effort to stop it and got a hand to it which was enough for the referee to go to his pocket. Unfortunately for him, he identified Kieran Gibbs as the culprit and the Gunner left back was sent off. Three more goals would come as Arsene Wenger was given a tough result on his 1,000th game in charge. They should bounce back for the midweek hosting of Swansea City. Oxlade-Chamberlain will likely be given the ban for Gibbs' red.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been growing up before our eyes now that he's healthy this season with another strong performance against Spurs today.

The midfielder was integral in Arsenal's second minute goal getting the assist on Tomas Rosicky's strike. He should have doubled Arsenal's lead not too long after that when he was in alone on Hugo Lloris' goal only to get the end product wrong. His attacking influence waned somewhat as the match went on but he continued to be a strong presence as Arsenal tried to maintain any possession and occasionally mount an attack as Spurs dominated possession. The Ox will be a strong fantasy option at a very reasonable price through the balance of the season as he has likely earned his spot even when Arsenal's midfield is healthier.
Mar 16 - 2:16 PM

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain continued his effective play since returning from the injury that robbed him of the first half of the season.

In the wake of his two-goal debut as a central midfielder, there was some question as to whether it was a one-time outburst against a modest opponent or a symbol of a talent in the process of emerging. While the answer still isn't 100% clear, the Ox's performance in Arsenal's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Sunday helped bolster his reputation as he scored Arsenal's opener and assisted on Podolski's winner. In-between the two goal-scoring appearances Chamberlain has struggled to make an impact in Theo Walcott's spot so there is clearly more work to be done before he is a strong fantasy choice at anything other than rock-bottom prices.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, making his first start since opening day, scored a brace to see Arsenal over Crystal Palace.

Arsenal have seemingly had a new goal-scoring hero every week over the last few months. Cazorla, Podolski, Bendtner, and Wilshere have taken their turns in the absence of Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott. The hero-of-the-week thing has worked against the leagues also-rans but whether it will work against stiffer competition remains to be seen. It also makes things more difficult for fantasy managers who don't have a consistent source of points in Arsenal's attack.
