Oxlade-Chamberlain happy with Arsenal first-team progress

Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is delighted with the regular role he has secured at the Emirates Stadium and the responsibility that comes with the role, Sky Sports reports.

The 18 year old was signed from Southampton last summer by Arsene Wenger with one eye on the future, but Oxlade-Chamberlain has quickly found his feet and emerged into a first-team regular. Oxlade-Chamberlain has been touted for a place in the England Euro 2012 squad and is thriving under the limelight he has found himself in. Wenger is expected to use Oxlade-Chamberlain again in Wednesday’s fixture at Goodison Park against Everton, as Arsenal look to start a run that will see them seal Champions League football for next season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain said: “I felt comfortable in the Manchester Unied game, because I thought we came out in the second half and played really well. Playing in a team like Arsenal helps massively, having all of these players around you giving you advice. When they are playing well, you feel comfortable and it helps you to play well too.”

Arsenal have enjoyed a change in form recently with victories over Tottenham, Liverpool and Newcastle in the last three league games. The form of Tomas Rosicky has improved in the last few weeks and Oxlade-Chamberlain has been inspired by the way the Czech international is playing. The 18 year old has hailed Rosicky’s play as ‘absolutely amazing’ and is delighted that the attacking threat of Theo Walcott, Gervinho and Robin van Persie, as well as Oxlade-Chamberlain, are coming together nicely.
