Report: Oxlade-Chamberlain could face up to three months out with knee injury

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has potentially been dealt a cruel blow with reports suggesting he left Emirates on crutches and could face up to three months on the sidelines after sustaining a knee injury in the Gunners 3-1 loss to Aston Villa.

The England international started the match on the wing and looked promising throughout the first half however collided heavily with a Villa defender just before halftime and was consequently substituted at the break.

The Sunday Mirror Sport are reporting the 20-year-old was on crutches after the game, and if the diagnosis is as bad as feared, ligament damage could mean three months out.

It is a huge blow for Arsenal and the Ox himself with the Gunners squad slowly depleting with a host of injuries dampening the squads spirits even more after the humiliating 3-1 loss at home.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has really stepped up recently and it is a massive disappointment if he faces a lengthy spell on the treatment table after finally breaking into the first XI.

Although nothing is confirmed as of yet, we will keep you updated as the situation unfolds. All is not well at Emirates.

  1. Arsenal playerss should be proffesional enough not go for silly challenges. I m a great fan of chambo but I was really disapointed with him for making that decision off the ball. The squad is even thinner after 6 out of 11 players got knocks yesterday. I wish him and the rest of the squad quick recovery. And I hope wenger realises he buys now or he risks being booed after every game.
