Arsene Wenger sets date for Oxlade-Chamberlain return, confirms Danny Welbeck is still not 100% fit


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he has no new injury concerns after Sunday's defeat against Manchester United.

Attacking midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to be ruled out for eight weeks and will miss tough away games against Tottenham Hotspur, Barcelona and Everton.

Striker Danny Welbeck is expected to start on the bench tonight against Swansea City.

"I will have to check today but I don't think we have any problems from Sunday apart from one or two who have muscular tightness," Wenger said.

"Apart from that, everybody should be available.

"[Oxlade-Chamberlain will be out for] six to eight weeks. No surgery.

"We feared surgery at some stage before we saw the MRI. In the end we got, on that front, positive news. The next eight weeks means March and April. He should be OK for the Euros.

"It's possible I will make changes [for today's game]. Some players are still not out of it. I will have to see if I have to be cautious with Danny Welbeck or not. Medically I need advice on that and I will see."
