2 – The Ox is getting there
It wasn’t a perfect performance from Oxlade-Chamberlain, but he did score two goals and also put together some good passes. His end product is improving and his pace continues to be a huge asset for the attack. Players like Iwobi do not have the same level of acceleration so it is good to have varied options in the wide roles. After more than 6 years at the club, it is important that he proves himself this season as Arsenal cannot continue to invest in a player that is not going to deliver. What is important now is that he stays fit and delivers some consistent performances, if he does that I’m sure he will get a place in the starting eleven more regularly, and that will be his chance to prove himself.
