Oxlade-Chamberlain trusts Wenger

Arsenal youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain insists Arsenal is the right club for him to develop in to a top star.

The former Southampton youngster has made an impressive start to life at the Emirates Stadium scoring in both the Carling Cup and Champions League – becoming the youngest ever English player to score in the competition.

Those who watch football live at the Emirates have certainly been impressed with the youngster, who was a rare bright spot at the start of the season when the club made a poor start to the campaign.

However, their football scores have picked up in recent weeks, rising up to seventh with a run of just one defeat in 11 games across all competitions, including four wins on the bounce.

Chamberlain hasn't always started games in recent weeks but insists he realised he is at the gunners for the long-term.

"It is a work in progress and I don't think there's any need to rush into things. I trust the boss (Wenger) and he is going to develop me,” said the 18-year-old

"I knew that when I signed here it would be hard for me and that maybe in my first season I wouldn't get a lot of game time.

"But I'm learning so much in training from the likes of Robin van Persie and the rest of the boys - and the manager as well.

"I have only had a few appearances, but I have scored two goals and I am happy with that."

Oxlade-Chamberlain added: "I think there's a lot more to come from me so I am just going to keep working hard, keep learning in training.

"It is down to me, I have got to put pressure on the boss to select me."I can only do that by training well and, when I do get my chance, impress him.

"The boss has said it is up to me, he is going to work with me the same way I have to with him."
