The Ox says Arsenal are happy with point against Tottenham

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain happily managed to knock in Arsenal’s equalising goal against Tottenham on Saturday, and although everyone would have preferred to win the game, The Ox is content that we fought back to remain unbeaten and is trying to look at it positively.

“1-0 down is a tough ask, especially in a derby – it’s not a situation you want to find yourself in,” he said. “Nerves can creep up at that point because you know how much it means to everyone not to lose the game. So we did well to come back into the game and make it 1-1. At that point I felt we had the momentum to go and win it. Personally I’m a bit disappointed we didn’t managed to nick the last goal and take all three.

Chamberlain – Arsenal can beat Chelsea by controlling the game

The Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seems to be in the news a lot more since his goal against the Spuds on Saturday and he has now revealed that the Gunners will not be changing their attacking style when they play Chelsea next week, but he expects a much better outcome than last years 6-0 demolition from Mourinho’s men last season.

“We do understand what happened there last season,” said Oxlade-Chamberlain. “Maybe we have got a point to prove there, we know this year we have got to step up in the big games and get some results in them this year.

Arsenal very short of players for Fulham clash

Luckily for Arsenal they are going through a generous period of the fixture list and could probably afford to rotate a little bit, which is just as well as they have EIGHT players on the injury list ahead of this weekends fixture against Fulham.

Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky, Nicklas Bendtner, Theo Walcott, Nacho Monreal, Abou Diaby and Thomas Vermaelen are all extremely doubtful for the game as Wenger explained: “Monreal looks a doubt for Saturday, a big doubt, because he twisted his foot on the kick. It is not the bruise, he turned and twisted the ligament. Rosicky had surgery with a general anaesthetic for a broken nose in two places. With a mask he may be available, but we have to monitor it closely,”

How will new transfers change the season for Arsenal?

Arsenal’s 2012-2013 pre-season has been somewhat overshadowed by the Van Persie saga which seems like it’ll rumble on into the new campaign. The flipside of this is that Arsenal’s new big name acquisitions have quietly slid into place setting Arsenal up for a genuine title challenge.

Perhaps the Arsenal board were prompted into action by the hostility they faced at the prospect of losing arguably the best player in the English game – RVP. Players the calibre of Giroud, Podolski and Corzola will offer Arsenal a wealth of attacking creativity which will surely make Van Persie head for the exit in two minds.

Walcott says that Oxlade-Chamberlain has given Fabio Capello a headache!

The Arsenal and England winger Theo Walcott believes that the emergence of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the last few weeks will give Fabio Capello a “good headache” when he has to decide who to take with him to this summers Euro 2012 tournament.

Walcott couldn’t hide his admiration for the 18 year-old and thinks The Ox will now keep his place in the Arsenal first team as well, despite his age. Walcott said: “He’s very direct and he likes to get at players, which is what any Arsenal fan likes to see,”

The Ox wants to play for Arsenal every week! (What fatigue?)

The Arsenal youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was at the centre of a storm when Arsene Wenger took him off against Man Utd yesterday, and his manager made the excuse that The Ox had been sick during the week and was suffering from fatigue.

But Chamberlain made no mention of being tired in an interview straight after the game, and today he is making it clear that he wants to be in the team every week!

“I was happy to get a start and obviously against opposition like Man United – it doesn’t come any better than that,” Oxlade-Chamberlain said on the official Arsenal website.

Oxlade-Chamberlain – I haven’t made it yet at Arsenal so i’ll keep working until I do!

The young Arsenal starlet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has burst on to the scene at the Emirates and has impressed everyone with his performances so far, and has even been talked about being a pat of the England squad to go to the Euros this summer.

But Chamberlain himself has kept his feet on the ground and is humble enough to know that he hasn’t really made the big time yet and won’t let all the hype get to him. He said: “I just don’t read too much into it at all,”
