Wenger quashed rumours that Oxlade-Chamberlain has had a setback in his recovery from a knee injury suffered on the opening day of the season against Aston Villa.
The 20-year-old was reportedly ruled out until late January but Wenger said: "He had no real setback. I believe he is still at least one month away from competition but he has had no real setback. New Year is a reasonable target."
