Oxlade-Chamberlain’s knee injury is quite serious,says Wenger
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s knee injury is quite serious ahead of premier league clash against Manchester United.
The Arsenal midfielder injured his knee when he collided with Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday.
This rules out the Ox for Sunday’s clash with Manchester United and is set to be out for a few weeks nursing the injury.
The 22-year-old undertook scans yesterday to determine the extent of the injury which revealed knee ligament damage.
While addressing journalists ahead of their game against Manchester united, the Arsenal boss confirmed the injury blow.
“We lost Chamberlain on Tuesday night. His injury is quite serious and will keep him out for a few weeks,” he told reporters.

“He’s seeing a specialist because he’s injured his knee. He’s out for a few weeks, for how long exactly I don’t know.
“It’s a new injury. When he was cut in two by Mascherano he did his knee. We have to see how great the damage is. It was a fully committed tackle, but I don’t think it was a malicious tackle.
“Let’s hope we get good news and it’s only three weeks rather than six or seven.”
