Arsenal Legend Backs Gunners ace To Impress

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Arsenal midfielder

Former Arsenal defender Nigel Winterburn believes that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s England form can be transferred to his club side if he is given a chance.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has found first team football hard to come by this season at Arsenal and when he has been given the chance he has failed to deliver his top form.

The 19-year-old scored in a positive display for England on Friday night and may be given more of a chance at the Emirates if he can put in a similar display against Montenegro on Tuesday if selected.

Winterburn believes that if Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was to give the pacey winger more of a chance in the Gunners first team Oxlade-Chamberlain can build up his confidence and show the undoubted ability that he has.

“He’s had a disappointing season for Arsenal and hopefully the goals will help him build his confidence,” Winterburn told talkSPORT.

“It’s a catch 22 situation for him at the moment.

“He hasn’t played much for Arsenal and when he has played, he hasn’t played well.

“When you don’t get a run in the team, sometimes you try so hard that it just doesn’t happen for you.

“It’s a difficult situation for him but it’s pleasing to see him score and hopefully he’ll improve.”
