Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has suffered a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury, ruling him out of Arsenal's Barclays Premier League clash at West Brom.

The England forward, who suffered the injury in the Capital One Cup loss to Sheffield Wednesday, is also expected to miss the key Champions League clash with Dinamo Zagreb next Tuesday.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said: "He had a slight little setback on Monday but we checked by scan and there is nothing wrong but he is still a fraction short for Saturday."


Arsenal star the most dispossessed in Premier League

Here's a stat that will probably surprise you; Alexis Sanchez is the most dispossessed player in the Premier League this season.

The Chilean is widely and rightly considered one of the most fearsome forwards in England, with six goals already in 2015/16 and 16 last term.

But Arsenal's go-to man for goals is more likely to lose than ball than any other player, perhaps because he takes more risks and also since Arsenal typically enjoy so much of the ball.

The players immediately below Sanchez in the table certainly back this theory up, as they all play for England's big teams who tend to dominate matches.

Arsenal keeper not worried about Emirates future

Wojciech Szczesny is unconcerned about his future and is happy to wait until after next summer's European Championship to make any decisions.

The 25-year-old Poland international goalkeeper is currently on loan at Roma after parent club Arsenal let him leave on a temporary deal having made a move for Petr Cech in the summer.

Szczesny has settled into life in the Italian capital and has become a key player in Rudi Garcia's side.

My future will be decided after the European Championships," he told sports website

"I love Arsenal, but I'm happy at Roma. I know that Roma want me, but I don't see why Arsenal would not want me also.

"Leaving Arsenal was painful and it was a difficult decision to make. I can't imagine myself with another English team."
