Arsene Wenger and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Groin injury still sidelines the Arse

Oxlade-Chamberlain has a groin injury, and Wenger said earlier this week he was giving the Arsenal midfielder "a complete rest for two weeks".

Roy Hodgson has spoken to Wenger and does not believe the problem will affect the player's World Cup chances.

But the England manager plans to name a provisional squad on May 12, and Oxlade-Chamberlain appears increasingly unlikely to play before then.

Wenger told the club website: "Alex is in treatment at the moment and not in training. It is very difficult to give you a timescale on him at the moment."

Hodgson said on Tuesday: "From my conversation with Arsene, I don't think there is too much to worry about with Oxlade-Chamberlain."

Hodgson also expects Jack Wilshere to be fit for Brazil, although the midfielder will not feature for Arsenal against West Brom this weekend.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
