Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain rescued a point for his side as his second-half equaliser denied Tottenham Hotspur the spoils in yesterday’s North London derby.
The England international has been used sparingly this season as boss Arsene Wenger attempts to juggle his squad in order to get the best out of the likes of Mesut Ozil and new signing Alexis Sanchez.
Nonetheless, the 21-year-old was entrusted to start the Premier League encounter against Spurs and make himself a menace down the right flank.
Despite his excellent energy and renowned ball-carrying ability, Oxlade-Chamberlain isn’t the most prolific scorer and his effort against Spurs was his first goal since February.
Speaking to Arsenal's official website after the game, he said that he needs to work on his finishing and add goals to his game.
"I'd like to [score more but] it's easier said than done," he said. "I told my dad before the game that the law of average said I'd missed enough chances so surely it was time to score.
"I'm really happy to get off the mark but I completely agree with you - it's something I want to improve on. It's something I feel I have the potential to do better so I'll be working on that but it's important that I do my other role in the team too defensively and trying to create for others.”
Since joining the North Londoners in the summer of 2011 for an initial fee of £12 million, Oxlade-Chamberlain has gone on to represent the club 85 times in all competitions, scoring just nine goals.
