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.
