Bellerin to replace Oxlade-Chamberlain for Stoke clash 0

Posted on May 12, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin is set to be recalled for the injured Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in Saturday’s Premier League meeting with Stoke City. The Spanish international has been on the periphery in recent weeks, having been dropped due to poor form, but is expected to return in a right wing-back role this weekend. His manager hinted as much after Wednesday’s win over Southampton.

Bellerin was axed from the starting eleven after manager Arsene Wenger adopted a 3-4-2-1 formation, playing second fiddle to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. But with the English midfielder now ruled out for the Stoke City with a hamstring injury, his Spanish counterpart will deputise. There had been question marks over Bellerin’s attacking quality in a wing-back role, but his manager has defended him ahead of Saturday’s trip to the Bet365 Stadium.

Arsenal had their first real sight of goal on ten minutes. Alexis Sanchez found Aaron Ramsey in the box with a superb through ball, but the Welshman’s effort was saved low superbly by David De Gea.

Who will come in for Arsenal for the injured Xhaka? 0

With Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka injured ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash with Manchester United, manager Arsene Wenger has a decision to make on who to replace him in the engine room.

Francis Coquelin is the prime candidate to deputise given he’s a deep-lying defensive-minded midfielder. Mohamed Elneny, also a player of substance, is an option but has featured so little of late that he may miss out. But Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain might be a wise choice given his form in recent weeks and what he brings to the midfield.

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been the Gunners’ standout star in 2017 and the English international impressed in Sunday’s FA Cup extra-time victory over Manchester City. Oxlade-Chamberlain has been operating as a right-sided wing-back due to the poor form of Hector Bellerin in recent weeks and was key in Arsenal coming from behind to reach the FA Cup final this weekend.

The 23-year-old played 105 minutes at Wembley Stadium and created more chances (3) than any his teammates, setting up Arsenal’s equaliser for Nacho Monreal. Oxlade-Chamberlain also made more dribbles (6) and whipped in eight crosses this weekend. While initially struggling at wing-back, he settled in the position and became influential in turning the tide on Pep Guardiola’s side.

Arsenal are through to the FA Cup final after a 2-1 extra-time victory over Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.

City offered the first threat on goal on three minutes, as Kevin de Bruyne dragged an effort wide of goal from distance. There was then a period of the two teams feeling each other out and the Gunners had their first attempt of the game just prior to the quarter of an hour mark.

Olivier Giroud’s header from inside the area was straight at Claudio Bravo. City went up the other end and Petr Cech was forced into tipping a David Silva header wide of goal.

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was honest in his interview after the Gunners earned a narrow victory over relegation-threatened Middlesbrough on Monday night, admitting the players had let standards slip during their woeful run of form.

The Gunners had lost five of their last eight Premier League games ahead of the trip to the Riverside Stadium, recently suffering a 3-0 defeat away to Crystal Palace which has all but ended their chances of a top-four finish.

And after stopping the rot to Middlesbrough, Oxlade-Chamberlain revealed players haven’t been giving their all of late.

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been left out of the starting lineup of late but could return to the XI in Monday’s trip to face Middlesbrough given the disjointed performances from the Gunners of late. Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny underperformed in the 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace, and given Arsenal’s desperation to stop the rot may see Oxlade-Chamberlain called upon to inject some urgency to their build-up play.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should leave Arsenal 0

When Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain arrived at Arsenal from Southampton in 2011 he was one of the brightest young players in the English game. Gunners fans would have that he would go from strength-to-strength and become a top player at the north London club.

Fast forward nearly six years and Oxlade-Chamberlain is a peripheral figure in the first team. At 23, he is in and out of the Gunners starting line-up. What is worse is that the Gunners are playing poorly and yet he still is not starting games on a regular basis.

The 23-year-old England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is thought to be ready to quit Arsenal at the end of the season.

Ox is cutting a frustrating figure at the Emirates this season with the winger being used sporadically by Arsene Wenger and, in most cases, is being forced to play as a midfielder.

Unsettled by his limited playing time and the fact he is being forced out of his natural position, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is considering his options as the likes of Liverpool and most recently Manchester United look his way.
