Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has taken an important step to recovering from a serious knee injury, reports the Daily Mirror.

The England and Arsenal winger sustained the knee injury on the opening day of the season against Aston Villa and hasn't featured or trained since then.

But Oxlade-Chamberlain has taken a huge step towards making a full recovery after the player successfully started running in a bid to step up his rehabilitation.

It's a significant hurdle for the 20-year-old to clear, considering the player hasn't been able to train significantly for four-months.

There is hope within the Arsenal camp that he can be back among the Arsenal first team squad after the heavy Christmas period.

Oxlade-Chamberlain\s impending return is not just good news for the Gunners and Arsene Wenger but also Roy Hodgson.

The England manager wants the former-Southampton player to get back in to contention for selection ahead of the World Cup next summer.

Lukas Podolski is also nearing an injury return, having sustained a grade three hamstring tear earlier in the season.

The German international is back in full training and could return before the new year.
