Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed his frustration at his failure to score more goals for Arsenal this season.

The England international is yet to find the target in the Premier League for the Gunners this season, and Chamberlain admits he's disappointed not to have scored more this term.

The former-Southampton star found the net four times during his debut Premier League season, but so far this campaign he has managed just one goal - against Coventry City in the Capital One Cup.

"For me, I want to be getting more goals and more assists so I am always beating myself up when I don't, like against Reading," Chamberlain told the London Evening Standard, and was quoted on

Arsenal beat Reading 5-2 on Monday night, bringing to an end a shocking run of form that included defeats to Swansea at the Emirates Stadium and away to Bradford in the Capital One Cup quarter-final.

"But as long as the boys are winning, that is the main thing. For me, I will keep trying to do the right things on and off the ball. It is not just on the ball - working hard is important for my fullback - Baccy [Sagna] or Carl [Jenkinson], whoever it is.

"I know I have got quite a good shot so when an opportunity comes about and I don't hit the target or make the keeper work, I'm not a happy boy.

"I am always hard on myself and trying to push myself to do more and I'm sure the fans are doing that to me, too, as I'm finding out."

Arsenal confirmed today Chamberlain has signed a new long-term deal at the Gunners, along with fellow young stars Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs, Aaron Ramsey and Carl Jenkinson.

Arsene Wenger's side face a difficult trip to Wigan next in the Premier League.
