Oxlade-Chamberlain: It's Down To Me

Oxlade-Chamberlain: It's Down To Me

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came to Arsenal with a huge reputation of being one of the brightest prospects in English football.

Alex has impressed greatly with the small amount of pitch time he`s already had, scoring in both the league cup and champions league, showing some touches of sheer brilliance, but also showing that he is still in the infancy of his footballing career.

AOC, knows he still young, but will work as hard as he can to put pressure on Arsene Wenger to pick him for the first team.

'I think there's a lot more to come from me so I am just going to keep working hard, keep learning in training and get some more appearances to do well,' he told Arsenal Player.

'It's down to me at the end of the day, I've got to put pressure on the boss to select me. I can only do that by training well and, when I do get my chance, impress him. The boss has said it's up to me, he's going to work with me the same way I have to with him.

'It's a work in progress and I don't think there's any need to rush into things. I trust the boss and he's going to develop me in the same way.

'I knew that when I signed here it would be hard for me,' added Oxlade-Chamberlain. 'I was playing more week-in week-out at Southampton and I knew that maybe in my first season I wouldn't get a lot of game time.

'But I'm learning so much in training from the likes of Robin van Persie and the rest of the boys - and the manager as well. I've only had a few appearances but I've scored two goals and I'm happy with with that.'
