Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored 88 seconds apart to account for the only two scores of the day as Arsenal secured a tidy 0-2 against AFC Bournemouth.
There was no Fraser Forster today to spoil Arsenal's attacking clout. In the 23rd minute, Olivier Giroud headed an Aaron Ramsey cross into the path of Mesut Ozil and the German midfield struck the back of the net. 88 seconds later, Ramsey was key in the second goal, feeding "the Ox" with a pass and Oxlade-Chamberlain fired low and in off the far post. The Gunners threatened more in the first half but their possession and chances began to dry up in the second frame. It made no difference, as the Cherries were kept mostly in check by Petr Cech and some shots off target. The win sees the Gunners jump above Manchester City in the table and will take on the Cinderella Foxes at The Emirates next weekend. Feb 7 - 10:30 AM

Will Theo Walcott's failure to track back against Olympiakos lead to him being benched for the visit of Manchester City?

If Olympiakos offered enough threat down the flanks to force Wenger to move Walcott from right to left to ensure that Joel Campbell was present to help with defending then how could City not inspire more care from the Gunners. With the prospect of at least three of Raheem Sterling, Aleksandar Kolarov, Kevin De Bruyne and Jesus Navas speeding up and down the wings attacking Arsenal won't have the luxury of fielding a player who isn't going to track back consistently. That almost certainly means Oxlade-Chamberlain and Campbell in the wide spots with either Walcott or Giroud as the center forward.

Arsenal's attack continues to recover as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been declared fit in addition to Aaron Ramsey who returned in mid-week as a substitute.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has been out since the League Cup loss in October but finally looks to be available again for an attack that has been depleted since that loss. Aaron Ramsey returned in mid-week as a substitute and could be first in line for a start of the two returning players. There is also a chance that Ramsey plays at the base of midfield while Ox plays on the right side of attack but if Mathieu Flamini starts with Santi Cazorla then Ramsey will probably get 60 to 70 minutes with Oxlade-Chamberlain getting the balance of the time.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's hamstring strain has caused two issues for Arsenal going into Week 11 with the Ox and the man who came in for him, Theo Walcott, both out for the trip to the Liberty Stadium.

With Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all out through the mid-November international break Joel Campbell seems most likely to step into the Gunners' starting eleven. Campbell has yet to show much in an Arsenal shirt but, to be honest, Arsene Wenger hasn't gotten a great deal of productivity from that spot thus far this season. Aaron Ramsey finally scored his first goal of the season against Watford and Oxlade-Chamberlain didn't do too much against Everton before going out injured early in the League Cup.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may miss out on his big chance to feature with Aaron Ramsey injured as he went off in the 5th minute of Arsenal's Capital One Cup match with Sheffield Wednesday.

The prognosis on Oxlade-Chamberlain isn't known yet but it seems unlikely that he will be ready to participate against Swansea on Saturday after going out so early. This will be a disappointment to Oxlade-Chamberlain who could have used a run in the side as well as to Arsene Wenger who certainly needs an alternative to Aaron Ramsey on the right side of the attack. Ramsey is expected to be out until after the November international break.

Fantasy managers looking for a midfield boost on waivers will want to put in a claim for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as Aaron Ramsey's injury opens the door for at least 3 consecutive starts.

With Arsene Wenger indicating that Aaron Ramsey will be out until after the next international break, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the prohibitive favorite to pick up starts against Everton, at Swansea and against Spurs at a minimum. Oxlade-Chamberlain is a more natural fit in the right attacking spot that Ramsey has been playing and the ability to play off the in-form trio of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott means that the Ox should get some good chances to make an impact. Oxlade-Chamberlain should be the first player picked up on waivers this week in your draft-style league if he is currently available.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain didn't get credit for the goal but he caused it to go in off of Fabricio Coloccini for the only goal in Arsenal's 1-0 win against Newcastle at St. James' Park.

For the second week in a row, Arsenal were on the wrong end of an official's call as Hector Bellerin wasn't awarded a penalty after being tripped in the box by Florian Thauvin. The Gunners did get some luck when Oxlade-Chamberlain's second half shot deflected slightly off of Coloccini and found it's way into the far corner for a much-needed goal. The Gunners started with Theo Walcott in place of Olivier Giroud as a center forward and were missing Mesut Ozil but the attack didn't look much more fluid than it had in the first three weeks as the Gunners continue to struggle to start the season.

Arsenal have defeated Chelsea in the Community Shield, giving Arsene Wenger his long awaited win over Jose Mourinho.

Arsenal won the trophy through a Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain goal in the 24th minute. The Gunners then held on for deal life as Chelsea pushed back in the second half, without any results. The irony of the match was that Arsenal parked the bus against Chelsea after going up 1-0, and won with the same way Arsene Wenger has criticized in past seasons. Mourinho will surely be disappointed with losing, but there is no doubt the manager has his sights set on another Premier League title.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is back in training with the first team but will not be ready for Arsenal's season-ending match against West Brom at the Emirates.

Consider this season a half step forward for Oxlade-Chamberlain. When he played, he showed improvement along the path that could see him secure a starting spot on the right of the Arsenal attack or somewhere in the center of the park in the future. The downside was that minor injuries continued to plague his development. With Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck all missing significant time over the second half of the season, the Ox could have played a lot more but his own injuries got in the way. He may get a chance to come on as a substitute in the FA Cup final but he won't make it back for Week 38.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal's FA Cup semi-final against Reading, Arsene Wenger indicated that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is " least two weeks away."

The England midfielder has had a strong season when he has been available but he has continued to fight minor injuries throughout the season. The injuries have prevented Oxlade-Chamberlain from challenging Danny Welbeck for the attacking spot to the right of Olivier Giroud or from gaining more experience as a deeper-lying central midfielder (where Arsene Wenger has occasionally suggested the Ox might end up eventually). The performances have been better than last season but it still has to be considered something of a lost season for the promising 21-year-old.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain faces a month on the sidelines after injuring his hamstring in Arsenal's 2-1 FA Cup win over Manchester United.

This is disappointing news for both the player (he's had a lot of minor injuries this season) and the club (he's been playing well recently). At the club level, the news of Oxlade-Chamberlain's upcoming absence is mitigated by the presence of Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott who are both adept at the right-sided attacking role Oxlade-Chamberlain favors when healthy.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be assessed after the Arsenal winger was replaced during the FA Cup win at Old Trafford after suffering from an apparent muscular problem, thought to be a hamstring issue.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has been blighted by a number of minor muscular niggles this season but following his last injury [groin] and longest lay-off [five weeks] the England international had hoped for a problem free run-in. However this latest setback – his seventh of the season – has flagged the Ox as an early doubt for the visit of West Ham this weekend while his place in the squad that travels to Monaco in the UEFA Champions League three days later is also at risk. Fortunately Wenger has been able to welcome a number of players back from injury recently giving the Gunners’ boss a number of potential options should a scan confirm a strain. Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott are both ready while Jack Wilshere is only days away following minor ankle surgery.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal's Champions League match with Monaco, Arsene Wenger indicated that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has returned to full training and should be available for action if called upon.

After missing out on the Crystal Palace match over the weekend, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seems likely to take Jack Wilshere's place on the bench. Wilshere will reportedly miss out as he continues to recover from his ankle injury while the Ox is training fully and should be ready to go. With Danny Welbeck having put in a man of the match performance against Crystal Palace, the bench seems the most likely spot for Oxlade-Chamberlain as he faces the reality of being fairly deep on the depth chart when Arsenal are close to fully fit as they are currently.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has resumed normal training and should be an option for Arsene Wenger against Crystal Palace this weekend.

Oxlade-Chamberlain will, in all likelihood, be on the bench against Crystal Palace. Despite the fact that he has proven to be an extremely versatile performer this season, having played both wide attacking roles as well as deeper-lying and attacking central roles, Oxlade-Chamberlain seems unlikely to start. With Ozil, Cazorla, Rosicky, Welbeck, Sanchez, and Walcott all vying for the three spots in front of the defense not occupied by Francis Coquelin and Olivier Giroud, the Ox will be lucky to have a spot on the bench. His opportunities will be squeezed even further as Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey return over the next few weeks.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has resumed training in the wake of a strained groin but will not be ready for the Week 24 trip to White Hart Lane.

With Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil both back to full health, Oxlade-Chamberlain would likely have been on the bench for this match regardless of his health. With another Premier League match coming up against Leicester City on Tuesday, Oxlade-Chamberlain likely won't figure in the League again until the February 21 match with Crystal Palace at the earliest. Even then, he is likely to be a seldom-used reserve with Alexis Sanchez, Ozil, Cazorla, Walcott and Danny Welbeck all likely ahead of him in the pecking order for minutes.
