Wenger Relieved As Arsenal Star Declared Fit for Chelsea Showdown

By on March 17, 2014


Arsene Wenger has been handed a massive injury boost for this weekend’s Premier League showdown versus Chelsea, as star winger Oxlade-Chamberlain has been declared fit for the match.

The England international has been playing well for Arsenal of late, but in Sunday’s win versus Tottenham at White Hart Lane, it appeared that the youngster might have sustained a calf strain.

He was substituted late on, with worries abound among Arsenal fans that the player would be forced to miss the trip to Stamford Bridge this weekend.

The news is a rare positive for Wenger on the injury front, as recent injuries to Ozil, Wilshere, Ramsey and Walcott have spread the Arsenal squad thin at the most decisive moment of their season.

Wenger will also be pleased at the extra time that Arsenal have to prepare for their showdown at Stamford Bridge, while Chelsea play Galatasaray this week.

What do you think? Do you think this news will prove decisive over the weekend at Stamford Bridge?
