Sky sources understand Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered only a minor hamstring injury during Wednesday's win over Southampton and could be fit to face Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

It had been reported that the Arsenal winger could miss the Wembley showpiece on May 27 but it appears his chances of recovering in time are better than first thought.

However, the 23-year-old remains a doubt for Saturday's trip to Stoke, live on Sky Sports.

Laurent Koscielny is also being assessed ahead of the trip to the Bet365 Stadium after sustaining a calf injury which kept him out of the win against Saints.

Oxlade-Chamberlain missed Arsenal's FA Cup final win over Hull in 2014 and failed to make the starting line-up for the win over Aston Villa 12 months later.
