Arsenal Dealt Fresh Injury Blow

By on November 17, 2013

Arsenal have been dealt another injury blow with the news that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has suffered a set back in his recovery from a knee injury, according to reports today.

The Ox hasn’t featured since suffering a knee injury on the opening day of the season against Aston Villa back in mid-August. He was initially expected to be out for around 3 months meaning he should have been ready to make his first team comeback any day now.

However, the Mirror are one of several newspapers who are reporting that the 20-year-old has suffered a set back and is not expected to be back in action until the New Year.

The knee is taking far longer to heal than hoped and Oxlade-Chamberlain has been told he can not return to training for another month. It will take him at least 2-3 weeks to get back up to full fitness before he’s considered for first team action meaning we’re unlikely to see him until 2014.

Our injury problems this season – particularly in midfield – have been horrific and there’s little doubt our lack of options on the bench have hampered us at times, so it’s another blow to lose Chamberlain for at least another month.

It’s not only a blow to Arsenal but also for the player as the longer he goes without playing, the less time he’ll have to get himself back in the frame to land a place in Roy Hodgson’s World Cup squad.

Get well soon Ox and hope we see you back soon.
