The attacker was withdrawn from Sunday's FA Cup victory over Manchester City after picking up a foot injury, but the problem is not as serious as it once looked.

Wenger insists that there is no cause for Gunners fans to worry, despite the winger needing crutches post-match.

“It was more precautionary, it was not for a bad injury,” Wenger told Arsenal’s official website. “We will test him today. It’s a foot injury but it’s a kick.”

Arsenal host Leicester City on Wednesday, with Oxlade-Chamberlain a doubt, and Wenger admitted that he is still unsure on the exact fitness of other players.

“It’s basically unknown territory at the moment because yesterday [Monday] the players were on recovery,” he added.
