While it’s been another frustrating campaign on the whole for the Arsenal fans so often drowning their sorrows in the Transfer Tavern, things have improved of late.
Having had to endure the pain of seeing bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur confirm the fact they’ll be finishing above them for the first time in two decades, a recent run of good form has at least given the Gunners reason to cheer.
Still, reports from the Daily Telegraph haven’t gone down overly well amongst our north London locals. They’ve revealed England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could miss the FA Cup final once again, after suffering a hamstring against Southampton last night.
On a good run of form as a wing-back, the 23-year-old limped off after just 36 minutes at St. Mary’s and faces an anxious race against time to be fit for Wembley’s showpiece in just 17 days.
He missed the 2014 final through injury and wasn’t picked for the 2015 edition, though the idea of not having him in the starting XI this time around is a far scarier notion than in previous years.
