Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Made successful return to action

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Made successful return to action

The 20-year-old midfielder has been out wth a knee injury since the opening day of the season but played 45 minutes for the club's U21 side against their Fulham counterparts at Motspur Park.

His return is timely given Theo Walcott's season-ending knee injury, and Monday's trip to Aston Villa is now a realistic aim.

Arsene Wenger said on Friday: "He played and did well. I wouldn't have any hesitation playing him against Villa."

Oxlade-Chamberlain told the Arsenal website: "Obviously I wasn't at my full fitness here and it was quite hard, but the main thing was that I got through it and that is a positive. It is just really good to be back.

"It's never easy having an injury, especially when it's your first long-term one because you are not used to it and not sure how it will pan out.

"When I look back on it's been a good learning curve, but at the same time it is somewhere you don't want to be. I am just thankful that I got through it."

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
