Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is said to be on schedule to make a return from his recent injury problems, according to the Daily Star.
The 22-year-old sustained a hamstring problem during last month’s embarrassing defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup and has since missed Arsenal’s last three games and will sit out England’s friendlies against Spain and France this week (via Star).
However, The Star reports that he is now back sprinting in training and is expected to make his return in the clash with West Bromwich Albion on November 21.
The midfield flyer took to social media site Instagram to post a picture of himself stepping up his training with the caption: “The rehab is going well, 80-90% sprints today…looking forward to being back on the pitch soon.”
Oxlade-Chamberlain is currently one of eight Arsenal players out of action right now, and joins the likes of Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey, David Ospina, Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Danny Welbeck in the sickbay (via Star).
However, full-back Hector Bellerin is also expected to make a return for the Baggies clash laster this month (via Star).
