“I was shocked by that performance” – Arsenal fans rave over Chamberlain’s game
Arsenal stormed to a 5-0 win over Southampton on Saturday to progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup.
The Gunners were too much for the Saints, who although had fielded a somewhat weakened side, are still Arsenal’s bogey team. Theo Walcott scored a hat-trick against his former side, while Danny Welbeck – who made his first start since his return from injury – bagged a brace.
One player, however, caught the eye of the Twitterverse following his superb performance in midfield. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain partnered Reine-Adelaide and Maitland-Niles in midfield to create a midfield three that helped dominate Southampton.
Here’s what some of the fans had to say about the performance…
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had an amazing game imo. Controlling and dominating the midfield tonight.

Great goal, that. Hell of a pass from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, then a lovely touch and calm finish to knock it under the keeper. #Welbz
