The winger has been in impressive form for the north London club following his arrival from Barcelona for £35m over the summer.
He has scored four goals and made two assists so far for Arsene Wenger’s men this term – and Oxlade-Chamberlain has been impressed by his work-rate.
“Alexis is a brilliant player and he does stuff that really does surprise you and you think, ‘how has he got out of that one?’,” Oxlade-Chamberlain told Arsenal Player. “And, like against Southampton, he’ll step up and put a free-kick in the top corner.
“To be fair, I knew he was going to do that because in the warm-up he had four in a row in front of a lot of fans.
“When he stood up to take the free-kick in the game I said to Kieran [Gibbs], ‘this is going in, you should have seen him in the warm-up’, and he put it top corner.
“It’s moments of brilliance like that [which show his quality] but at the same time he works harder than I think I’ve seen anyone work. He is so skilful but he also does the defensive work up front and sets the tone.”
