In news that will delight many Arsenal fans, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is recovering well from his hamstring injury sustained in the Capital One Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

The England international lasted just five minutes of the embarrassing 3-0 defeat at Hillsborough before he was replaced by Theo Walcott, who also went off injured.

Chamberlain is likely to return after the international break and the Gunners star gave his Instagram followers a positive update on his fitness.

The 22-year-old posted a video of himself partaking in a sprinting exercise with other Arsenal players who were not called up for their country.

He captioned the post: "The rehab is going well, 80-90% sprints today... looking forward to being back on the pitch soon".


The Ox's return to action cannot come soon enough for the Emirates outfit. With eight first-team stars currently in the treatment room, Arsenal's squad is looking threadbare. 

Arsene Wenger will not want to rush the forward back to action given how severe hamstring problems can become.

But with Joel Campbell currently the only recognised option on the right-wing, the French boss will be happy to see the former Southampton player making a strong recovery.

Campbell put in a strong performance during the win over Swansea City but questions still remain over his quality after poor performances against Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal's next fixture is an away trip to West Bromwich Albion on November 21 and Chamberlain could well be back in contention.
