Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain returns to action under-21 side
So yesterday Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made his long awaited return to action as he took part in the 1-0 win for Arsenal’s under-21 team yesterday. He played in 48 minutes and showed some nice touches early on before being taken off into the second half. His return will be a welcome boost after we lost Theo Walcott.
Elsewhere, there is a whole lot of transfer rumours everywhere. Alvaro Morata still is the name that is continuously mentioned on all of the blogs everywhere, I personally think he would be a great addition to our squad and add a new bit of strength to our attack. If we need another forward, signing one on loan would make sense.
Yesterday Mr. Wenger also admitted that he is seriously considering a move for a new striker in January as well. The player we need is not necessarily someone who is going to be playing every week, but someone who is decent cover for Olivier Giroud. I still think the Frenchman can do a good enough job for the remainder of the season.
Mesut Ozil picked up the German footballer of the year award for the third time running yesterday. A nice accolade for the midfielder – big congrats to him.
Let the games begin – I saw various rumours yesterday from all over the place, let’s see who Wenger decides to buy.
So, this weekend is a tricky visit to Aston Villa, here’s to hopefully another three points.
Have a good Friday all
