Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was pretty satisfied after his side's 1-1 draw against Lens in a pre-season friendly game as he urged caution over Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's fitness level.
The Englishman came on at half-time and impressed as he restored parity for the Gunners in the last part of the game.
He suffered two knee injuries last season and had to miss the Euro 2016 Championship in France.
But he looked sharp against the French side as he scored an impressive goal in the 81st minute of the game.
"It was a big atmosphere and all you could want to have a good preparation for the season," Wenger said after the game.
"They played quick, sharp, well organised and closed us down, and that's better than having loose friendlies. I'm very pleased with the quality of our workout.
"I'm still a bit cautious [over Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's fitness].
"He's fully recovered but I want him to go through four or five games first to be completely reassured. You could see that straight away, when he came on, he brought something to the team.
"Let's hope he gets through the rest of pre-season.
"It was also good for me to see some young players. Krystian Bielik came on and did very well for example, and you could see Alex Iwobi in different positions too, so it was interesting."
