Arsenal ace Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has backed the returning trio of Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott to shine in the second half of the season, reports the club's official website.

The Three Arsenal forwards have all endured injury problems throughout the course of the campaign so far, but now look set to play a major role for the club over the coming weeks and months. 

Important trio 

And Oxlade-Chamberlain certainly believes his attacking teammates will help the club succeed this term, as they go in search of retaining the FA Cup and securing a place in next year's Champions League. 

Speaking to Arsenal Player, the England international said: "To have those kinds of players back is only good for us, and I’m sure they’ll come back and play a massive role in the rest of our season.

“For a large majority of the season we have been without Mesut, and Aaron for a spell and Theo as well. To have those kinds of players back is only good for us, and I’m sure they’ll come back and play a massive role in the rest of our season.

On the season so far, Oxlade-Chamberlain has admitted that the club have enjoyed better starts, but are still in a strong position heading into the final few months of the campaign. 

Arsenal can still realistically secure two trophies this term and will be hoping for yet another top four finish, and Oxlade-Chamberlain is certainly excited ahead of the run in. 

Up-and-down 

He continued by saying: “It has been a bit of a strange up-and-down season. There have definitely been better starts but as you look at it at the moment, we are still there or thereabouts and there is still a lot of football to be played.

“We are still in a really good place in the Champions League, still in the FA Cup and in the league it is tight at the top around the teams in third, fourth and fifth.

“Chelsea have a little lead on everyone, but in terms of football to be played I think it’s quite exciting to think how the back end of the season could go.”

The midfielder and the rest of his teammates will currently be focusing on this weekend's home clash with Aston Villa as the club look to maintain their strong run, before travelling to White Hart Lane to take on north London rivals Tottenham the following week. 

There's no doubt about it, Wenger's side will be hoping to stay consistent throughout the remainder of the campaign, as they attempt to bring more silverware to the Emirates.
