Oxlade-Chamberlain Faces One Month Spell On The Sidelines

Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is likely to be sidelined for up to four weeks with a hamstring strain.

The 21-year-old midfielder limped off during Monday night’s 2-1 FA Cup last-8 victory at Manchester United.

Oxlade-Chamberlain will now miss England’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania on March 27, as well as his club’s Champions League round of 16 return leg tie away to Monaco. The Gunners trail their French hosts 3-1 from the first leg at the Emirates Stadium.
