Theo Walcott’s goal for Arsenal against Manchester City on Monday night was so good that it momentarily turned Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain into a zombie.

Sky Sports’ camera cut to the substitutes’ bench following Walcott’s opener in the first half of the Premier League clash, which the Gunners won 2-1, and there was Oxlade-Chamberlain walking around in a daze with his arms outstretched.

You can see the 22-year-old’s strange but comical celebration by scrolling a little further down this page.

It’s been a frustrating season so far for Oxlade-Chamberlain, whose 2015-16 campaign could not have got off to a better start.

It was the England international who fired in a superb goal to help Arsenal beat Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley in August but since then the winger has played a bit-part role.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has big role to play

A hamstring injury in October, which ruled him out for a month, certainly didn’t help. But at the moment he currently finds himself behind Joel Campbell in the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium.

Still, with Arsenal safely through to the Champions League knockout rounds and on course to seriously challenge for the Premier League title, Oxlade-Chamberlain should have a big role to play in the second half of the season.

It’s important, though, that he takes his chances when opportunities come his way. So far this season, Oxlade-Chamberlain has failed to score a single Premier League goal and has registered just one assist in 14 appearances.

However, the former Southampton starlet is a class act when on form and it shouldn’t be too much longer before Arsenal fans see the best of him once again.

Arsenal fans: should Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain be starting ahead of Joel Campbell? Let us know by leaving a comment in the box below.
