Wenger forgives Ospina: Manager says keeper not to blame for loss

Arsene Wenger has revealed, that winger, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain picked up a serious knee injury and will be out for a few weeks.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was involved in a tackle with Javier Mascherano and was later substituted off in the 2-0 loss to Barcelona.

Wenger, hopes the winger will be out for a few weeks and fit enough for the Euros, with the England international seeing a specialist in that regard.

“We lost Chamberlain on Tuesday night. His injury is quite serious and will keep him out for a few weeks,” he told reporters. “He’s seeing a specialist because he’s injured his knee. He’s out for a few weeks, for how long exactly I don’t know.

“It’s a new injury. When he was cut in two by Mascherano he did his knee. We have to see how great the damage is. It was a fully committed tackle, but I don’t think it was a malicious tackle.

“Let’s hope we get good news and it’s only three weeks rather than six or seven.”

When asked whether Oxlade-Chamberlain could be a doubt for the Euros, Wenger added: “I don’t think so but I’m cautious because he’s seeing a specialist now.”

Arsenal are currently third in the Premier League and face Manchester United this weekend, as they look to keep the pressure on title rivals Tottenham and Leicester City.
