Arsenal set to receive double midfield injury boost

Published Add your comment

Arsenal appear to have been handed a significant injury boost, with reports suggesting that two of their most-prized midfielders could return to action for Monday night's game against Aston Villa.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is prepared to consider Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for the trip to Villa Park and Welsh international Aaron Ramsey could also make a surprise return.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has not featured for Arsenal's first-team since their opening day loss to Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium, with the England midfielder having sustained a serious knee injury.

The 20-year-old, who joined Arsenal from Southampton back in August 2011, stepped up his promising recovery by returning to first-team training and playing 45 minutes for the club's U21 side against Fulham at Motspur Park this week.

23-year-old Ramsey, meanwhile, whose sublime early form provided the catalyst for Arsenal's swift rise to the summit of the top-flight, suffered a thigh problem during the Boxing Day victory over West Ham at Upton Park and was expected to be out for at least a month.

However, it appears he has made a quick recovery and could be in line for a shock return against Paul Lambert's Villiains.
