Oxlade-Chamberlain out for ‘several weeks’

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Oxlade-Chamberlain is hoping to be part of England’s Euro 2016 squad

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be out for a “few weeks” with a knee injury, says manager Arsene Wenger.

The 22-year-old England international suffered the knock in a challenge with Barcelona’s Javier Mascherano during Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 tie.

He left Emirates Stadium on crutches after the 2-0 first-leg defeat.

“We lost Chamberlain on Tuesday. His injury is quite serious and keeps him out for a few weeks,” said Wenger.

The French manager added that could mean “two or three weeks” or perhaps “six or seven” depending on the verdict of a specialist.

Oxlade-Chamberlain joins three other Arsenal midfielders on the sidelines – Tomas Rosicky, Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla.
