Calum Chambers needs to step up at Arsenal, says Man United legend
Andy Cole assesses Calum Chambers's performance for Arsenal
Calum Chambers is starting to realise what it means to play at a club of Arsenal’s stature, according to Andy Cole.
The Gunners centre-half was sent off in the second half of an error-ridden performance as Arsenal lost 3-2 to Stoke City at The Britannia.
And Manchester United legend Cole reckons Chambers needs to make big improvements if he wants to be a success at the north London side.
“Calum Chambers is starting to realise what playing week in week out means at a big club. Now he needs to step up, he’s at a club that wants to win championships and compete in the Champions League,” Cole told BBC Sport.
“Stoke are prepared to mix it with Arsenal on a physical level. Arsenal play beautiful football, but when it gets physical there are not a lot of Arsenal players who are able to stand up to the challenge.”
Chambers has scored one goal in 14 appearances following his £16m move to Arsenal from Southampton in the summer.
