Arsenal defender: I’m good friends with Man United’s Luke Shaw
Calum Chambers is looking forward to coming up against Luke Shaw on Saturday
Calum Chambers admits that he is looking forward to coming up against the familiar face of Luke Shaw when Arsenal host Manchester United on Saturday.
The defensive duo came through Southampton’s youth academy together before both leaving St Mary’s in the summer.
The pair were both on international duty with England this month, and Chambers is full of admiration for the 19-year-old left-back.
“We’re good friends,” Chambers told Arsenal Player. “I’ve been with him for the past week and a half having a bit of banter with him about it. It will be a good test for both of us.
“It will be a bit weird playing against each other – the only time we have has been in training in 11 v 11, so it’ll be a good test for both of us.
“He’s a very big talent. He’s a quality player and you can see that from last season. He had a fantastic season and he’s having a good season so far this time around. He’s a class player and everyone should be able to see that.
“I’ve just got to work out what his weaknesses are, so I’ll be analysing him. You’ve just got to play your best against him, concentrate on your game and work on his weaknesses.”
