Arsene Wenger has been speaking to the media ahead of Arsenal’s vital Premier League clash with Manchester United, at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Wenger confirmed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after picking up a knee injury against Barcelona on Tuesday night.

“We lost Oxlade-Chamberlain and it is quite serious, Wenger said.

“It will keep him out for a few weeks.”

He added that could mean “two or three weeks” or perhaps “six or seven” depending on the verdict of a specialist.

On other team news for Sunday, Wenger confirmed that Gabriel faces a fitness test after missing the last three matches with a hamstring injury.

Arsenal will be seeking a first Premier League win at Old Trafford since 2006, with Wenger saying.

“It is a special place and it is always a special fixture for any side.

“If we win it puts us in a strong position (in the Premier League title race) but there is still a long way to go.”
