Arsenal sweating over Oxlade-Chamberlain injury ahead of Stoke trip

Arsenal sweating over Oxlade-Chamberlain injury ahead of Stoke trip

Arsenal must now win their three remaining games and hope City or third-place Liverpool drop points if they are to secure a 20th successive season of Champions League football.

"Overall it was a very convincing win", explained the Arsenal manager.

"We had some chances in the first half, it was a very even game".

"He always grows during games, he is always a bit of a slow starter and gets stronger and stronger".

Giroud settled the contest with a late header and Wenger admitted the form of his frontmen has left him with a selection headache.

"I felt that, if you look at individual performances, you couldn't be disappointed from the goalkeeper right through to Danny Welbeck".

"I wish we'd found this before", Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi said", but we have three games left".

The fear among those Arsenal fans who want Wenger out is that the Frenchman will use the strong finish to the season as evidence he's turned the team around.

Certain conditions apply, however; the statues can not be displayed outdoors on public property in New Orleans . Unlike the first three statues, city officials plan to take Lee's statue down during the day.

Thankfully the injury isn't serious and the French worldwide was able to take part in training on Tuesday so Wenger says the centre-back now has a chance to return to the squad tomorrow.

The Gunners beat Southampton 2-0 mid-week to overtake Manchester United and move into fifth-place. "We were dynamic, quick going forward and well-organised".

The only negative for Arsenal about the evening was Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain coming off with a hamstring injury in the first half; Wenger said the midfielder-turned-wing-back will be assessed in the coming days but wouldn't give an estimate for his return.

"Every game we try to give ourselves a chance", Cech, who made two crucial saves in the first half to keep the game level, told BBC Sport.

It was Sanchez' 14th away goal of the season in the Premier League and Wenger said: "Alexis showed exactly what he's about tonight".

It was Sanchez's cross that Aaron Ramsey headed back across goal for Giroud to nod in the visitors' second goal in the 83rd minute. It's a good team, a team that likes to play.

That result on the south coast means the Potters have won just one of their last nine (versus Hull), which includes five defeats.
