Arsenal fans react to Calum Chambers performances on Twitter

Gunners fans did not celebrate victory over Besiktas but there was much to cheer for with prospects as 'Chambers is better' than Manchester United star.

The manner in which Calum Chambers has adapted from a fringe player at Southampton to a reliable first-teamer at Arsenal has left a number of pundits purring over the player's potential.

At just 19-years-old, the English prospect does not seem out of his depth in Premier League or Champions League competition - and exciteable Arsenal fans believe they secured the superior Saint to Manchester United's Luke Shaw… and at half the price, too.

Shaw's season last term saw him break into the England squad and win a £32 million transfer to Manchester United.

His upward trajectory appeared to have more momentum than Chambers's, yet it is the latter whose transfer has been the more successful to date as Calum has put in two successive performances that are man of the match worthy.

Chambers's displays have been so strong that some fans believe it gives Arsene Wenger a selection headache as the French boss may wonder what to do when Per Mertesacker returns.

When Chambers signed, it was believed he was marked as one for the future, however, he could well be one for the present, with Wenger now free to pursue a holding midfield specialist and a prolific goal-scorer, rather than prioritise a replacement for Thomas Vermaelen at centre back.
