Arsenal unsure of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s availability for this weekend’s clash against Liverpool

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is doubtful for the Gunners’ Sunday meeting against Liverpool, with the England international recovering from a groin injury.

“We hope that Oxlade-Chamberlain will be fit. That’s what we’ll see on Saturday after a test. He’s not in training at the moment,” said manager Arsene Wenger. While normally a more advanced player, the former Saints man has been forced to play in a deeper role with so many players on the treatment table.

The 21-year-old has been a key player for Arsenal this season, especially with such an injury crisis in the midfield. He was substituted late in the Gunners’ 4-1 win against Newcastle last weekend, and the club already have Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere out of action.
