Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be set to miss the rest of the season, with the midfielder not recovering from his groin injury as quickly as it was hoped, according to The Independent.
The England international suffered a hamstring injury during our 2-1 FA Cup win over Manchester United, and has since suffered a groin injury as a result.
Arsene Wenger claims he is unsure whether the 21-year-old will play again this season, and that he is unsure exactly when he will be back.
“It is in the balance,” Wenger is quoted as saying by The Independent.
“The inflammation has not completely cleared. He is on the way, building up and he might join in next week in full training and then we see. He is at least two weeks away.”
The Ox has been superb at times this season, and played a huge part during the first half of the campaign when we suffered a glut of injuries.
He is unlucky to be facing the rest of the season watching on from the sidelines, as he endured the same problem last year.
The versatile star missed the end of the last campaign as well, and was forced to miss out on our FA Cup final victory over Hull.
Hopefully he recovers and is able to play some part this time around, as he has been such a huge player for us this season.
