However, should everyone return to their usual positions, Wenger hinted that Chambers could play in midfield due to his high technical ability.

“He can play as well central midfield because he’s got good technique, good mobility and is a great distance runner,’ said the Frenchman.

“He was educated as a centre defensive midfielder. Then he played in the under-19 with England, he played central defender, he played for Southampton right back. I saw him first time against us as a right back and I liked him.

“At the end of the season he didn’t play too much at Southampton. But I made my mind up to buy him after I saw him against us.

“He’s one of the players over the two games who played very well.

“He’s 19 years old and he came here without talking, he plays two good games and is not phased by the quality of the games and the opponents at his first time at the Emirates at 19. He’s one of the satisfactions of the weekend.”
