Shearer hails Arteta’s work with defender as he makes his Team of the Week

Calum Chambers was in fine form as Arsenal came from three goals down to draw their last league game against West Ham.

Having missed several months of action due to a long-term injury, the Englishman was a surprising pick to start the game.

He did well and caused all kinds of problem for the Hammers when he attacked them down the Arsenal right.

Alan Shearer named him in his Team of the Week and praised Arteta for the work the Spaniard has done on the defender.

Chambers was one player that Arteta trusted to play for the team when he was newly appointed as their manager before the long-term injury ruled him out for several months.

His return has been a welcome development for the Gunners and Arteta has continued to show faith in him.

Shearer says he delivered two superb crosses from the right which resulted in two Arsenal goals.

After naming Chambers in his Team of the Week, he wrote on the official Premier League website: “Claimed an assist and forced an own goal with two superb right-wing crosses. The defender has been rejuvenated by Mikel Arteta.” 

Martin Odegaard also made his team and he said of the midfielder: “He ran the game from midfield and was the driving force in Arsenal’s fightback. Gunners’ fans will be hoping he signs permanently.”

  1. we really cannot rely on chambers to cover the right back position. Yes he had a decent game against west harm, but is that convincing enough? certainly not. He doesn’t look sharp enough. He needs to go on loan for at least a season to get more playing time. Buying a right back should be our priority.

    1. We don’t need a right back in my opinion, even if Bellerin is sold. We have both Cedric and Chambers who are both better. We just need a back up left back.

  2. Yes you are right. Do not worry about Khaly he does not know financials and football transfers. First and foremost the entirety of Arsenal’s summer transfer window money should be focused on Odegaard and a cover. for lb hell we should use a arsenal U23 lb that was from the la masia academy before, and Bellerina should be sold to boost money. Cedric is good enough and has a lot of experience in the premier league and Chambers will only get better as a CB, DM, and RB (this positional flexibility alone is very helpful for Arsenal). Considering our money and the Kroenkes this is the best transfer plan we could do this summer.

  3. In terms of priorities, you are correct Declan.A back up for Tierney, and two athletic midfielders are essential for next season.Hopefully, Saliba and perhaps Mavroponas will return to replace Luis and Mari who is never going to make it in the EPL I’m afraid.

  4. Yeah guys ur right we have all the perfect replacement for bellerin we only need the club to seal Martin’s deal if possible

  5. The who referred to Mari who is far too slow for the EPL.This is why he was released by Man City.If you cannot recognise this clear flaw in his make up you need your eyes testing Arsenal2win..As for Luis he is simply last his best.I trust this clarifies the situation for you.

  6. Mari is not slow,just that he had a bad game,he is more composed than gabriel and hardly pick up careless cards
