According to The Sun, the England international was initially ruled out for three weeks after injuring his hamstring in the victory over Manchester United last month. Their 2-1 win in the FA Cup quarter-final set up a semi-final meeting with Reading next weekend.

Chamberlain has now picked up a groin injury and is set for a longer spell on the sidelines. The former Southampton man has played 35 goals in all competitions so far this season, scoring three goals.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told reporters: “He now has a groin inflammation related to everything before.

“I hope it’s not long-term but he’s not available for the semi-final and is out for at least two weeks. He has a hurdle this week in training and next week we will know if he has recovered well.”
