Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has recovered sufficiently from his hamstring injury to be in contention for Week 29 at the Hawthorns.
Whether Oxlade-Chamberlain would start, and where, even if healthy is a big question with Arsenal's midfield returning from illness, injury and suspension. Ox has played well in the holding role but it is difficult to presume that he is the preferred starter anywhere on the pitch at this point. Mar 17 - 6:06 PM

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looks set to miss out this weekend despite Arsène Wenger’s early optimism that the hamstring injury he suffered in the FA Cup does not look serious.

Arsenal were taking no chances in the quarter-finals against Lincoln City on Saturday as Wenger named a strong starting XI to face the non-league outfit. The Gunners cruised to a comfortable 5-0 win, but the victory came at a cost as Oxlade-Chamberlain was forced off with less than 30 minutes on the clock: "[It’s his] hamstring," Wenger said post-match. "I don’t know [how serious], we have to assess it [but] it didn’t look a big one." Even if tests confirm the 23-year-old did not suffer a significant strain, it’s likely that Arsenal will not want to risk the England international ahead of the break for fear of exacerbating the problem. Oxlade-Chamberlain has been in decent form of late, starting in 7 of the last eight games, and the news will come as a huge blow. However, with a Champions League place still to play for, Wenger will want to ensure he has a healthy squad for the run-in.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said he doesn't think there is much behind rumors saying Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain wants to leave the club.

The 23-year-old winger has been linked with a summer exit after reportedly being unsettled with his lack of starting opportunities under Wenger. But Wenger said he continues to rate Oxlade-Chamberlain highly and sees his future with the Gunners: "I am surprised by that [reports] because I believe he has developed well and played well when given his chance. When you are somewhere you have to want to be there first. After that I say I rate him highly and I think I showed that by staying behind him when he was injured. I personally wish he stays - I think he is a very promising player who has developed well and who looks also to have the values we rate."

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain wasn't great but he was solid subbing in for Aaron Ramsey who is himself a sub for Santi Cazorla.

With Aaron Ramsey injured and not a very good holding midfielder even when fit, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's solid performance in the 3-1 loss for Chelsea should offer hope that Arsenal will have a solution at the position next season between a returning Jack Wilshere and the Ox.

Arsenal will have at least one more player missing for the trip to Stamford Bridge on Saturday after Arsène Wenger gave a mixed injury update following the 2-1 home defeat by Watford.

Aaron Ramsey is a certain absentee after he was forced off with just 20 minutes on the clock because of a muscular injury, a problem which could keep him sidelined for several weeks: "It’s a calf strain," revealed Wenger. "I don’t know how long he will be out for, but it’s a calf strain." With Granit Xhaka suspended, Mo Elneny away on international duty and Santi Cazorla struggling to play again this season, the Gunners are without a holding midfielder to partner Francis Coquelin. With any luck, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be handed his chance in a deeper role as he was against Southampton in the FA Cup, a game in which he excelled. But first, the 23-year-old will need to prove his fitness. "He got a kick on his knee. I don’t think [the injury is serious]. I think he should be alright," although Arsenal won’t know for sure until the player been fully assessed.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's injury at the Etihad apparently looked worse than it was and while the Ox will miss Boxing Day he doesn't seem likely to miss much beyond that.

Arsenal's depth throughout the attacking areas of the pitch makes this a relative non-issue. Alex Iwobi has played well in a larger role this season. If Iwobi isn't making the grade then Arsene Wenger always has the option to move Alexis back to a wide role and insert Olivier Giroud back into the starting line-up. With Lucas Perez also available Arsenal will not lack for attacking options during the festive period.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is in danger of missing the entire festive fixture programme after limping off at the Etihad on Sunday due to a muscular problem.

Arsène Wenger made just one change from the midweek defeat at Goodison Park – Alex Iwobi was named in the XI for the first time in the league since the beginning of November as Oxlade-Chamberlain's run of four consecutive starts ended abruptly against Man City. With the scores level at 1-1, the 23-year-old was introduced on 65 minutes but his cameo didn’t last long as Mo Elneny replaced the England international within quarter of an hour. Speaking to the press after the loss, Wenger confirmed: "He’s injured. It looks like a hamstring - it’s a muscular problem." Typically, we’d be looking at a 2-3 week recovery period with my guess being a return after the FA Cup game in January. That should open the door for Iwobi while Aaron Ramsey is also close, although fitness-wise he’s not quite ready to start just yet.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored a goal on either half of the interval as Arsenal beat Reading 2-0 at the Emirates.

Arsenal won comfortably over Championship side Reading and also managed to give their core players a much-needed rest. Arsene Wenger ensured that reserves like like Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gabriel, and Jenkinson who haven't been playing much got a chance to hone their match fitness. Olivier Giroud also came on as a second half substitute which might prepare him to play a bigger role against Sunderland.

Arsène Wenger will err on the side of caution as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain continues his recovery from a serious knee injury.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has not played competitively since damaging his medial knee ligament during the loss to Barcelona in the last-16 of the Champions League back in February. The unlucky winger, who has endured an injury plagued few seasons at the Emirates, then suffered a setback in training [May] which effectively ended his hopes of appearing at Euro 2016. However, Oxlade-Chamberlain is hoping to hit the ground running this season in what could be a make or break year after just 49 Premier League starts since his arrival at the club in August 2011. The 22-year-old scored a sublime equaliser against Lens on Friday but Wenger remains cautious: "He’s fully recovered but I want him to go through four or five games first to be completely reassured. You could see that straight away, when he came on, he brought something to the team. Let’s hope he gets through the rest of pre-season."

Arsenal traveled to the north of France for their pre-season opener and drew 1-1 with Lens on Friday.

It was a line-up comprised of more reserves and fringe first-teamers than it was a full strength squad. Per Mertesacker and Nacho Monreal were the only two likely first choice starters that featured with Martinez, Chambers, Debuchy, Elneny, Coquelin, Walcott, Iwobi, Akpom, and Reine-Adelaide joining them. With much of the squad still recovering from summer tournaments it was a lackluster performance but it did come with a real highlight of an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain goal from a tight angle.

With his career at Arsenal stalled, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could look for a move to Leicester City this summer.

Something about the Arsenal experience hasn't agreed with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Whether it is physical frailty on his part or something in how Arsenal train, he has been injury prone. His game also hasn't progressed as hoped. Could a move to Leicester City be the tonic for what ails him? It doesn't feel like the sort of move that led to the Foxes' success but he could be an undervalued asset if a different approach gets him closer to his potential.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain re-injured his knee during his return from his previous knee injury and will miss both Arsenal's final two matches and the European Championships.

With so many players threatening his position for both Arsenal and England, it's hard to imagine that Oxlade-Chamberlain would have seen the light of day even if he'd been healthy but the new injury removes all doubt. With rumors swirling about a potential transfer over the summer one wonders whether there will be a market for the former Southampton trainee due to the long string of injuries that has set his progress back. Could he be Arsenal's "New Diaby"?

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reportedly injured both his knee and ankle in Arsenal's 2-0 loss to Barcelona at the Emirates on Tuesday and is likely out for the rest of the season.

Yet another injury for the Ox likely means that Theo Walcott will get a start against Manchester United on Sunday with Joel Campbell firmly back in the frame for significant playing time as well. The bigger picture question about Oxlade-Chamberlain is whether Arsenal will move on from a player whose development has stalled due in part to injuries. His miss against Barcelona in the first half on Tuesday underscored Arsenal's need for more match-winners in the attacking areas.

Arsenal is waiting for the results of a scan on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after leaving yesterday's match with Barcelona due to a leg injury.

The 22-year-old limped off the pitch during the 2-0 loss, when he was the subject major criticism for his poor finishing and touch. However, Oxlade-Chamberlain left Emirates Stadium on crutches and was sent for a scan as the club fear he could have suffered ligament damage in either his ankle or knee in a challenge with Javier Mascherano, which could rule him out for a month. In the meantime, expect Theo Walcott to break back into the club's starting XI for the weekend showdown with Manchester United while the Gunners wait on the injury news. Joel Campbell also remains an option but Walcott looks to be the more reliable option in recent weeks.

Arsenal defended stoutly for as long as they could but just couldn't keep Barcelona out as the Catalans eventually overwhelmed the Gunners 2-0 at the Emirates.

Despite a massive gap in possession, Arsene Wenger's team managed to keep Barcelona without a shot on target in the first half. They even had a couple decent chances themselves including one from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the first half that the England man should have done better with. Conceding possession eventually became too much in the second half and Barcelona scored with Luis Suarez starting a move that saw Neymar find Lionel Messi for the opener. Messi then scored a penalty to cap off the scoring. Going back to the Camp Nou down two away goals surely means Arsenal are eliminated from this season's Champions League.
