Arsenal legend congratulates Carl Jenkinson on great West Ham display

Lee Dixon reserved special praise for Carl Jenkinson after the West Ham United right-back nullified Swansea winger Jefferson Montero to help the Hammers win 3-1 at Upton Park.

Jenkinson, who moved on a season-long loan to the east London side from Arsenal in the summer, has been a first-team regular in Sam Allardyce’s high-flying side.

And the 21-year-old turned out another impressive performance as he managed to keep one of the Premier League’s fastest wingers, Montero, quiet on Sunday afternoon.

Jenkinson’s fine performance prompted former Arsenal full-back Dixon to take to Twitter to congratulate the England Under-21 international.

Arsenal sorely missed Jenkinson when £16m signing Calum Chambers endured a torrid 90 minutes at the hands of Montero as Swansea beat Arsenal at Liberty Stadium last month.
However, Dixon’s praise for Jenkinson prompted criticism of his own performances of a right-back despite a distinguished career for the north London club.
