The Arsenal winger was injured during his side’s Champions League defeat against Barcelona last week and must now be rated as a major doubt for Euro 2016
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be out for between six to eight weeks but will not require surgery on his injured knee.
The midfielder left the Emirates Stadium on crutches after a collision with Javier Mascherano during last week’s Champions League defeat against Barcelona.
“He will be out for six to eight weeks but he won’t need surgery,” the Gunners boss said.
Oxlade-Chamberlain is likely to miss the majority of the Premier League title run-in as Arsenal look to overtake Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City but will hope to have regained full fitness in time to be selected as part of Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2016 England squad.
After beginning his season with the winning goal in the Community Shield win over Chelsea, the 22-year-old has struggled to recapture his best form.
The former Southampton starlet has made 32 appearances in all competitons but has scored only one goal – in last month’s victory over Bournemouth – and has struggled to nail down a regular first team place.
