Video: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Goal Shows How Good He is

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would go some way to shutting up his doubters if he could keep producing quality moments like this for Arsenal.

The English winger’s career at the Gunners has been hampered by a number of serious injuries – his most recent seeing him last play in February before recovering only to re-injure himself in May and miss out on England’s Euro 2016 campaign.

He’s going into his sixth season as an Arsenal player yet has made just 149 appearances in that time, averaging under 30 games per season for the team.

So it’s about time Oxlade-Chamberlain found his fitness and started justifying the £15million Arsene Wenger spent to sign him from Southampton in 2011.

This morning’s game against Chivas Guadalajara is a good place to start with the English Premier League season just 10 days away and fans increasingly doubting his ability to contribute to the team.

With his side already in the lead thanks to Rob Holding’s goal, the Ox made it two with a brilliant run down the right before cutting in and curling home with his left foot:

Now that is the sort of quality Arsenal fans have been expecting consistently over recent years.

They may complain about the lack of top quality signings by Wenger, but a fit Oxlade-Chamberlain – something they’ve not had consistently enough – could be seen as a new player this season.
