Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain shows off some skills before Everton clash

Published Add your comment

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain did not have his best game for Arsenal during their 2-1 win over Everton on Saturday.

The England international was given just his third league start of the season but failed to capitalise on the opportunity in the absence of Aaron Ramsey. Although, he did produce a moment for the highlights reel during the pre-game warm-up.

The Gunners posted a video on their official Facebook page on Monday night of the 22-year-old pulling off some pretty impressive skills.

It is not the first time an Arsenal player has caught the eye in the warm-up; Alexis Sanchez's goal before the game against Watford attracted a lot of attention on social media and he was at it again ahead of the clash with the Toffees. (see the videos below)


Despite impressing the crowd before kick-off, the former Southampton winger was unable to capitalise on a rare Premier League start.

His pace and power down the right wing caused problems for young Everton full-back Brendan Galloway, but his end product was, once again, found wanting.

With Ramsey set to be out for at least three weeks, the Ox will get another chance to impress when Arsenal come up against Swansea next weekend. However, his decision making must improve if he is to secure a continued place in the starting XI.

The wide-man still has time on his side, but he will have to develop his final ball if he is to keep Ramsey out of the starting XI when he returns.
