Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to make comeback against North London rivals.
Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will return to the first team for the FA Cup tie with arch rivals Tottenham on 4 January, according to a respected Gunners ‘ITK’.
The 20-year-old has not played since the Gunners’ opening day clash with Aston Villa after suffering a cruciate ligament injury in the 3-1 defeat at the Emirates Stadium.
But The Ox is nearing full fitness and will reportedly be unleashes against chaotic Spurs, who are without a manager heading into the hectic Christmas period after sacking boss Andre Villas-Boas on Monday.
