Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has revealed that he's enjoying his time at Arsenal, reports the club's official site. 

The 19-year-old signed from Southampton in the summer, and injury problems catapulted him into the first team at the Emirates.

Changing position

Chambers started the season playing at centre-back, however Mathieu Debuchy’s ankle ligament injury sustained against Manchester City in September saw the youngster switched to right-back.

The defender is not bothered by moving around though, as he said: “It’s been a good experience for me, I’ve always found myself switching positions from a young age.

“It’s not nothing I’m used to but I really enjoyed my time at the start of the season and then unfortunately Mathieu got injured which meant I went to right back and I’ve enjoyed my time at right back as well, so it’s been a good start to the season for me.”

Chambers only played four times at centre-back, but enjoyed better form on the right hand side, with a goal and two assists in 13 appearances.

Arsenal style 

And the 19-year-old has admitted that Arsenal’s style suits him well, as he continued by saying: “You’ve got to get forward more and be involved more up the pitch, that’s the part of the game I enjoy at right back, I like getting forward, I like being involved higher up the pitch and that’s the way we get taught to play here at Arsenal.”

Arsenal’s style, however, has come under attack this season with the Gunners throwing away leads against Swansea and Anderlecht. The defence, though, has improved in recent weeks with the return of Debuchy to the starting XI.
