Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ruled out for 4 weeks with hamstring injury

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to miss England's crucial Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania with a hamstring strain.

The Arsenal star limped off during the second half of Monday night's FA Cup win over Manchester United.

He underwent a scan on Tuesday and club medics will hold further checks before making a definitive diagnosis.

But Oxlade-Chamberlain is a huge doubt for the clash against Lithuania and the friendly against Italy.

Roy Hodgson names his squad for the double-header at next week.

The news will come as a blow to Arsene Wenger despite the euphoria following the win at Old Trafford.

Oxlade-Chamberlain will miss a string of Arsenal matches including next week's Champions League clash in Monaco and next month's league visit of Liverpool.
