Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has suffered an injury setback which could see him miss the FA Cup final for a second season.

The midfielder picked up a hamstring problem at Old Trafford in March but it was his groin that has been causing him problems and keeping him out of the side.

Now, speaking at his press conference ahead of the United game on Sunday, Arsene Wenger has revealed that the Ox has suffered a hamstring problem in training that could rule him out for the rest of the season.

“He won’t play next week. If he can be available for West Brom then he may play the final.”

The Mirror’s John Cross added

“Wenger says Oxlade-Chamberlain likely to miss cup final after damaging hamstring in training.”

The news comes as a blow to both the player and the team who have missed his dynamism and ability to run at players, however with Arsene it’s always difficult to know the truth given that he managed to contradict himself regarding the Ox’s availability.
