Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is unlikely to feature in Arsenal match against West Ham on Saturday as he waits on the result of a scan to assess the severity of a hamstring injury suffered in Monday night’s FA Cup win over Manchester United at Old Trafford.
There is also a doubt on whether or not he will be fit for England’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania on March 27th and a friendly match against Italy just four days later.
Wenger when speaking to Arsenal’s official website said: “Chamberlain has a hamstring strain. The only thing we don’t know is how bad it is, because usually the scans are only done 48 hours after the accident.
“That will be done on Wednesday.”
Oxlade-Chamberlain had only just got back into Wenger’s squad following a groin problem could also miss the clubs second-leg Champions League match against Monaco next Tuesday with the Gunners needing some magic after having lost the first-leg at home 3-1.
As for the Premiership, Arsenal travel to Newcastle on the 21st of March before taking on top-four rivals Liverpool after the international break on April 4th.
