Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ‘could be available’ for selection against Norwich on Sunday.
The England international hasn’t featured for the Gunners since limping off against Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup and will provide welcome competition in a midfield missing Francis Coquelin, Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky.
The boss also confirmed that no new injuries were picked up against Dinamo Zagreb meaning Aaron Ramsey came through his return unscathed.
There is a slight concern over Alexis Sanchez who apparently has a minor hamstring issue, however, despite the temptation to rest the Chilean it looks as though he could play at Carrow Road.
“I will assess that later,” said the boss. “It might not be the right time to rest him.”
