Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be out of action for a number of weeks after he suffered a knee injury during the 2-0 loss to Barcelona in midweek.

The England midfielder sustained the problem late on in the first half of the Champions League clash at Emirates Stadium and Wenger revealed that he is now set for a spell on the sidelines.

Speaking at his pre-match news conference at Arsenal’s London Colney training base on Friday morning, Wenger said: “We lost Oxlade-Chamberlain and it is quite serious. It will keep him out for a few weeks.”

The Arsenal boss also revealed that he would make a late decision about whether to include defender Gabriel Paulista in Sunday’s squad after his lay-off with a hamstring problem.

He continued: “Gabriel has a test, we will see about him tomorrow. We still need to be cautious with Danny Welbeck.”
