Oxlade-Chamberlain will face a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's FA Cup semifinal against Wigan due to a groin injury, the club's official web site reports.

Manager Arsene Wenger described Oxlade-Chamberlain as 50:50, along with Kieran Gibbs and Tomas Rosicky. With Jack Wilshere (ankle) and Mesut Ozil (hamstring) still out, Ox will definitely be needed for midfield depth.

The FA has transferred the red card awarded to Kieran Gibbs on Saturday during Arsenal's match against Chelsea to Oxlade-Chamberlain. Arsenal have appealed the red card and the commission upheld the appeal, which means he is eligible to play Tuesday against Swansea City.

Oxlade-Chamberlain used his hand to stop a shot by Chelsea's Eden Hazard, although the ball was not on goal, which has saved Ox from the suspension, as he did not stop a direct scoring opportunity with his hand. The red card was given to Gibbs in a case of mistaken identity, with the FA clearing the matter quickly ahead of Tuesday's match.

Oxlade-Chamberlain stopped a goal with his hand in the 15th minute of Arsenal's 0-6 loss to Chelsea on Saturday, although teammate Kieran Gibbs was assessed the red card.

The FA will have to transfer the red card to Oxlade-Chamberlain, which means he will be yet another midfielder who will miss time, joining Mesut Ozil (hamstring), Aaron Ramsey (thigh) and Jack Wilshere (ankle) who are all out with injuries.

Oxlade-Chamberlain (calf) is in the starting XI for Saturday's Premier League match at Chelsea.

Ox picked up a calf injury late in last weekend's match against Tottenham but it was never considered serious. With Mesut Ozil (hamstring), Aaron Ramsey (thigh) and Jack Wilshere (ankle) all sidelined, the Gunners will be relying on Oxlade-Chamberlain's speed and finishing ability to keep the Gunners afloat.

Oxlade-Chamberlain picked up a calf injury late in Sunday's match against Tottenham, but he is not expected to miss next weekend's match against Chelsea, the Daily Mail reports.

This is very good news for Arsenal, who continue to have Mesut Ozil (hamstring), Jack Wilshere (ankle) and Aaron Ramsey (thigh) on the sideline. Oxlade-Chamberlain has been one of the Gunners' best players of late, and he'll surely be needed against Chelsea.

Oxlade-Chamberlain picked up an assist in Sunday's 1-0 victory at Tottenham Hotsput.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was dynamic in the first half, giving Spurs fits with his pace and change of direction. He drew a couple of fouls and collected three shots, albeit none of the attempts were on goal. Oxlade-Chamberlain will get more playing time while Arsenal's other midfielders heal, and we're intrigued to see how he handles the opportunity.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is in Wednesday's starting lineup against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

The Gunners have their A-list (at least those are healthy) on the pitch, save for striker Olivier Giroud. Oxlade-Chamberlain's recent breakout demands more playing time (he was the team's best player in Sunday's victory over Liverpool), so it's no surprise to see him here.
