Arsene Wenger makes claim about Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's future

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger has admitted that first-team star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has to play with more freedom, ahead of tonight’s Capital One Cup meet with Tottenham Hotspur. Wenger said that he wanted Chamberlain to play with more desire, and is expected to give the England midfielder the chance to strut his stuff at White Hart Lane tonight. The Frenchman also claimed that perhaps Chamberlain is too critical of himself sometimes - if that’s the case he’ll have no better stage than tonight upon which to perform. In other news, former Spurs star Ledley King has had his say on Gabriel’s run-in with Diego Costa and, typically, Gunners fans aren’t going to like what’s been said. King said Gabriel had been naive in the way he had handled the situation, and described Costa as having been clever to engage the defender in such a manner. Of course his comments might be slightly confusing, since Costa now has a three-game ban and Gabriel is effectively off the hook.
