Oxlade-Chamberlain (groin) picked up an assist on five key passes, three tackles and two clearances during Arsenal's 2-1 win over West Ham at Upton Park on Sunday.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was held out on Boxing Day due to the groin injury, but he looked plenty spry in his 89 minutes Sunday. Given his relatively-limited usage of late, he could be back in the starting XI on New Year's Day at Southampton.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that Oxlade-Chamberlain (groin) faces a late fitness test before Saturday's Premier League match against Liverpool.

Oxlade-Chamberlain had an injection in his groin earlier this week in order to aid in his recovery. If he's cleared to play, he could be inserted into the starting XI, as the Gunners are missing a number of attacking midfield options.

Oxlade-Chamberlain will have an injection to his groin injury in an effort to be able to play against Liverpool on Sunday, reports the Daily Mail.

Arsenal has a number of injuries to midfield players, and the club is hoping that the injections for Oxlade-Chamberlain will quiet the groin trouble that he picked up against Newcastle. The injury appears to be minor enough that the midfielder could play on Sunday.

Arsenal are worrying about the fitness of Oclade-Chamberlain after the midfielder was limping with a groin issue after being substituted on Saturday against Newcastle, reports Sky Sports.

The midfielder isn't officially on the injury report yet, but is worth keeping an eye on. Manager Arsene Wenger is hoping the player simply needs some additional rest, and that there is no larger injury.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said after Saturday's 1-0 win over West Brom that Oxlade-Chamberlain is dealing with a "knee problem."

Oxlade-Chamberlain came off the bench in the 78th minute if place of Olivier Giroud and finished out the game, so it's possible that the knee issue isn't too much of a concern. Unfortunately, he has only a few days to recover, as Arsenal will face Southampton on Wednesday.

Oxlade-Chamberlain assisted one goal in Wednesday's 4-1 win over Galatasaray.

The England winger played a through ball to Danny Welbeck who found the back of the net in the 52nd minute to give Arsenal an unassailable 4-0 lead. From a fantasy point of view, Oxlade-Chamberlain is hard to rely on due to manager Arsene Wenger's propensity to change his attacking options by the week.
