Oxlade-Chamberlain calls on Arsenal to get into the winning habit
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain admits he is desperate to help Arsenal end their long wait for a major trophy this season
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain admits he is desperate to help Arsenal end their long wait for a major trophy this season.
The Gunners have not tasted silverware since their FA Cup final triumph over Manchester United back in 2005.
Arsenal just pipped Tottenham Hotspur to a fourth-place finish last season but Oxlade-Chamberlain, who is currently sidelined with a knee injury, is hopeful the north Londoners can mount a title challenge this time around.
“It’s a big season for us and we really want to push on from where we finished last season,” Oxlade-Chamberlain told Arsenal’s website.
“We want to win something this year, there’s no hiding that. We have got the quality, and we have done for a while, but it’s all about consistency.
“That’s something that’s been lacking, so we need to nail that down this season and improve all over the team.
“We want to be successful in all competitions. When I’m on the pitch I want to make more of a contribution in terms of goals and assists.
“Last season we showed glimpses of what a force we can be. We beat Bayern Munich away – it wasn’t enough to win the tie, but we showed lots of resilience and grit on the night.
“Performances like that helped our momentum, and we went unbeaten for a number of games after that, but we need to produce that all the way through the season.
“It’s very hard to maintain that level for every game, especially when you are playing three games a week, but you need to get into the habit of winning, and keep on winning.”
