The real reason i substituted Chamberlain – Arsene Wenger’s shocking revelation

It a quiet for Arsenal football club at the moment, as our defeat to Manchester City yesterday automatic threw us out of the title race.

To compound our problems, Oxlade Chamberlain has picked up an injury just after playing for 13 minutes and will be expected to be out of action for the rest of the this year.

Theo Walcott opened the scoring with just five minutes on the clock but Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling put the hosts ahead with two second-half goals.

Wenger brought on Chamberlain when he should have gone for Elneny, to tighten our midfield and move Ozil to the flanks, but Chambelain lasted less than 14 mins.

It was unclear if the England international, who had been linked with a move to Manchester City over the weekend, was injured as he headed straight down the tunnel.

But Wenger has now confirmed that he was forced to take off the 23-year-old winger after he suffered a hamstring complaint.

The Gunners manager said of Oxlade-Chamberlain after the defeat: “He is injured, it’s a muscular problem. It looks like a hamstring.”

Wenger was left furious with the officials after the game as he felt both of City’s goals should have been ruled out for offside.
