Wenger resigned to loss of Oxlade-Chamberlain from injury

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is out injured for an indeterminate amount of time, boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed. The 20-year-old England international limped out of the Gunners' 3-1 home defeat by Aston Villa on the opening day of the new Barclays Premier League season with reports of a six month lay-off.

Wenger did not give any timescale on the player's recovery when he gave some team news to the club's official website, ahead of travelling to Istanbul for the Champions League play-off first leg against Fenerbahce on Wednesday.

"The difference from Saturday is that Oxlade-Chamberlain is out for a while with a knee problem," Wenger said on Arsenal Player.
