Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been stepping up his fitness after recovering from a knee injury, but may miss out of this weekend’s Norwich City clash due to a lack of match practice.

The English international has trained for a week with the first-team, but hasn’t had much in the way of competitive action to boost his condition for Premier League football. As a result, he could be forced to wait to make his long-awaited return.

Oxlade-Chamberlain last featured for Arsenal in February, but the meeting with the Canaries has come too soon according to manager Arsene Wenger. “It’s Oxlade-Chamberlain’s first week in full training now so I don’t think I will select him this weekend,” he said.

Leicester’s Kante has been nothing short of sensational and of course Arsene Wenger had seen him play before his move to the Foxes, as the veteran French boss is fantastic at signing players in hindsight, but not exactly great at signing players in real time.
