Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to get scan on hamstring

Still no official word, but there are reports.

Arsenal definitely makes us take the crunchy with the smooth, don't they? On a day when we should be celebrating the club's first win at Old Trafford since 1876, we discover that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who limped off just after half time, is going to have a scan tomorrow on what appears to be a hamstring problem.

Obviously we know nothing of substance now, but if it is something hamstringy, it could be a few weeks before Ox is back in action, which is a blow - it may not be the "heartbreak" that the Mirror says it is, but it's still unwelcome news for the club as they get ready for a crucial month in which there's another Monaco game and league matches against West Ham and Newcastle before a showdown with Liverpool in early April.

We'll of course have more when we know more, but for now, let's just hope there's nothing serious wrong with the Ox.
