Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: My best is yet to come


Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says he is happy with his pre-season form and is targeting a big season in the Premier League with the Gunners.

The Englishman scored the only goal of the game in Arsenal's 1-0 victory over Chelsea in the FA Community Shield.

And he admits that he should be scoring more goals after scoring only three goals in 37 games in all competitions last season.

"I don't know about 'wondergoal' but it was really nice to see that one go in," Oxlade-Chamberlain told Arsenal Player.

"I got a goal in the Emirates Cup, and it's what I need to do this year, there's no doubting that and I'm not afraid to say that I need to score more goals.

"I've set myself that target this year on a personal level so every time I'm on the pitch it's important that I try and contribute in some way and a goal or an assist is what I need to do.

"It was really nice to [score on Sunday] and as it's the winner it's that little bit more special.

"All-round we played really well. We didn't play our best stuff with the ball, I think Chelsea deserve credit for that, they are a great defensive side, and they stopped us from playing at time.

"But we did enough, we defended really well as a team and kept them to minimal chances. That's really positive going into the season because in the big games that's what it comes down to sometimes.

"I have absolute faith and confidence in this team and I think that can be shared throughout the squad.

"As a group of players we've been together for a good number of years, so there's a real team spirit and sense of togetherness."
