Calum Chambers: Arsenal star Per Mertesacker gives me advice
Calum Chambers reveals Per Mertesacker is a great source of advice
Calum Chambers says he turns to Arsenal centre-half Per Mertesacker for advice.
The England international has been thrown into the Arsenal side in recent weeks following injuries to Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker.
They always tell me what they would do and it is good to learn from as they are top quality players
Chambers has made two Premier League appearances as well as helping the Gunners eased to a 2-1 victory over north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Capital One Cup.
The Arsenal youngster revealed that he regularly turns to Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista for advice.
Chambers told Arsenal’s website: “I speak to Per a lot.
“Per is always there to help me out. In training if I ever need someone or I’m a bit confused I ask Per, Koscienly or Gabriel what they would do.
“They always tell me what they would do and it is good to learn from as they are top quality players.”
Chambers has endured a difficult start to the season after he struggled in Arsenal’s goalless draw with Liverpool at The Emirates last month.
The Gunners defender also scored an own goal last night to help Tottenham cancel out Flamini’s first-half opener at The Lane.
Arsenal face bitter rivals Manchester United in the Premier League at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
