Arsenal not only kept a rare clean sheet on Sunday, but they somehow did it away from home too.
Last term, they had to wait until April to achieve a result without conceding on the road, but this campaign, they’ve managed to do it after just one game.
It was a promising display from Arsenal who fielded Sokratis and Calum Chambers next to each other at the back.
However, it was the performance of Chambers that seemed to please fans the most as they took to Twitter after the game to praise the versatile 24-year-old.
One individual claimed they were happy that he didn’t leave the north Londoners during the summer whilst another said that a defender managing to do the basics at Arsenal was extraordinary.
A further fan suggested he was the most underrated player at the Gunners as his performance was labelled as a confidence builder.
Chambers spent last season on loan at Fulham but has come back to Arsenal ready and raring to play a major role.
He featured often in pre-season in defence despite playing in holding midfield for large parts of 2018/19.
Here’s the best of the reaction to Chambers’ performance on Sunday.
The sign of a good cb is if they dont get mentioned much. Chambers did all the basics right today. About time we had some decent options at the back

Pleased he didn’t go in the summer. I’ve always liked him. Think he has a lot to offer.

Chambers for me is a useful squad player. You need players like him to stick around like John Oshea and Wes Brown during the United glory days.

Kept it simple, it’s all we ask, don’t over complicate things and expose yourself, solid performance from him today

Saw it in his performances at Fulham, good to see it’s carried over into this season as well

Chambers has always been a good player in my books. I feel there is a lot more to come from him. Another reason I didn’t want him sold.
