PHOTOS: The Oxe Back In Training – Set For Comeback Against Fulham

By on January 8, 2014

Arsenal have confirmed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is back in full training this week and will step up his comeback by turning out for the under-21’s tomorrow.

The midfielder has been on the sidelines for over five months after picking up a knee injury during our opening day defeat to Aston Villa at the Emirates back in August.

The Oxe has endured a long road to recovery but finally returned the full training with the rest of the squad on Monday and reports suggest he’ll step-up his comeback by playing for the under-21’s on Thursday.

If he comes through that game unscathed, he should be back in the first team squad to face Fulham on the 18th.

His return comes at the perfect time with Theo Walcott ruled out for the rest of the season and Oxlade-Chamberlain could have a huge part to play during the second half of the season.
