The Ox will miss Saturday’s game.

Ruled out with the groin problem that has been annoying him for a while now, Arsene Wenger confirmed that Alex Oxalde-Chamberlain would not be available for Sunday’s showdown at White Hart Lane.

Speaking to, Wenger said

Alex is still out, but he is starting to practice again, not full training.

With Alexis also ruled out with a groin problem, Arsenal will welcome danny Welbeck back into the side for the first time this calendar year.

Jack Wilshere is expected to return to full training at the end of next week while Serge Gnabry will make his return from the serious knee injury that has kept him out for almost a year when he turns out for the u21’s against Newcastle United on Monday.

Krystian Bielik is also expected to feature in that game.

Confirming Welbeck’s return and the miracle that Arsenal picked up no new injuries since the Aston Villa game, Wenger added

Welbeck is back in the group. Apart from that we have the same squad available as last week.
