Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has suffered a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury, ruling him out of Arsenal’s Barclays Premier League clash at West Brom. Press Association “There is not many offensive positions where I can rotate. “I am worried because when he went to Chile he was already a bit jaded and to see what state he will come back (in), I will have to test. “But speaking to the player, if I ask him ‘are you tired?’ you can guess the answer.” Sanchez will not be flying off on national service until March at the earliest, giving Wenger complete control over his welfare. “That is welcome that there is no international break now,” he added. There has been some good news on the injury front, with right-back Hector Bellerin available following a groin problem. Wenger will assess Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud’s readiness to play after the pair’s involvement for France during the international break, when terrorists struck in co-ordinated attacks in Paris during their friendly against Germany last Friday. Wenger says defender Koscielny, in particular, appeared affected in Tuesday’s match with England at Wembley. The England forward, who suffered the injury in the Capital One Cup loss to Sheffield Wednesday, is also expected to miss the key Champions League clash with Dinamo Zagreb next Tuesday. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said: “He had a slight little setback on Monday but we checked by scan and there is nothing wrong but he is still a fraction short for Saturday.” Aaron Ramsey – who has been absent since the October 20 win over Bayern Munich – is likely to be fit to face Dinamo but Oxlade-Chamberlain will be available for the following weekend’s clash with Norwich at the earliest. “Ramsey will be back in full training on Monday and can play on Tuesday and Chamberlain I think against Norwich,” Wenger added. Theo Walcott, who injured a calf in the same game as Oxlade-Chamberlain, is still continuing his rehabilitation. “Theo is ahead of schedule at the moment but he is still two weeks away,” Wenger added. It all piles more pressure on the likes of Alexis Sanchez, who was due to return from international duty with Chile around 36 hours prior to the match at the Hawthorns. Chile lost 3-0 to Uruguay after a 1-1 draw with Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina’s Colombia during the international hiatus. Sanchez is becoming ever more important to Arsenal and Wenger wishes to give him some time off, but is unable to at present. Asked if the former Barcelona forward will be granted some leave, Wenger said: “At some point yes. At the moment I am a bit short because (I have) no Chamberlain, no Ramsey, no Walcott, no (Jack) Wilshere, no (Danny) Welbeck.

As Syracuse defensive end Josh Black tripped Lawrence from behind, Syracuse’s Evan Foster pummeled Lawrence and the freshman wouldn’t come back for the rest of the game.After senior quarterback Kelly Bryant announced his transfer earlier this week, Clemson was forced to use redshirt freshman quarterback Chase Brice. But led by a heavy run game — the Tigers rushed for 293 yards— Clemson (5-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast) stormed back and defeated Syracuse (4-1, 1-1), 27-23, on Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium.Here are three fast reactions from Syracuse’s near upset.So closeSyracuse opened its first drive of the fourth quarter with a touchdown. It led by 10. Then, everything fell apart and Clemson running back Travis Etienne took over.On Clemson’s next drive, Etienne ripped off a 17-yard rush and broke loose down the right side for a 26-yard touchdown. As he broke through the right side, the sophomore running back shook off diving attempts from both Ryan Guthrie and Andre Cisco.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn Clemson’s final drive, one which took more than five minutes and traveled 94 yards, Etienne sealed the game. From the Syracuse two-yard line, he ran untouched to the right side of the line and into the end zone, sealing SU’s fate.Dungey doing DungeyOn national television, against a defense which ranks in the top 20 in both yards and points allowed per game, Eric Dungey threw for 250 yards while rushing for two touchdowns.After spending the season’s first four weeks ranked 10th in ESPN’s Heisman Watch, Dungey pulled through against more high-end competition.On fourth and goal from the one-yard line, Dungey took the snap from the one-yard line. He rushed to the left and leapt but didn’t reach the endzone. His second effort would though. The senior quarterback waved toward the corner of the endzone as he and the SU fans celebrated a 23-13 SU lead.Role reversalOn Brice’s second pass of the game, Kendall Coleman stuck his helmet under the redshirt freshman quarterback’s chin. Steps earlier, Coleman fooled Clemson left tackle Mitch Hyatt. The junior defensive end jab-stepped left before bouncing outside and running straight through Brice.Early in the game in the second quarter, Chris Slayton broke through the middle of Clemson’s offensive line. Pushing his man aside with a hard punch to the shoulder, he broke into the backfield and sank Trevor Lawrence.Syracuse finished with four sacks and six tackles for loss. Comments
