Calum Chambers on the mentality he must have at Arsenal

Calum Chambers

The young defender has struggled for game time with the Gunners this season.

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers says he must keep looing to improve if he wants to be an Arsenal regular, in comments to the club’s official website.

The defender has found game time hard to come by at the Emirates this season, having made just ten appearances in the Premier League so far.

That has arguably been a disappointing return for him especially given he was a regular in the side last season, making 23 appearances in the league across the campaign.

He is still one of the future though and he says he must be looking to continuously improve if he is to be a first team regular in future.

“I have to keep striving to want more, wanting to improve,” he told arsenal.com.

“The level of the games now means you have to keep at your game every week. My mindset is on improving massively.”

“You have to want to be a better player so I think from a young age you have to have a good attitude and want to learn and improve.”

The problem for Chambers is breaking into a Gunners defence that has been highly impressive in the Premier League this season.

They are currently the joint second best in the division, having only conceded 22 so far, with Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny forming a solid defensive partnership so far.

Hector Bellerin has also made the right back spot his further reducing Chambers’ chances of becoming a regular in the Arsenal first team.

Arsene Wenger is likely to rotate his squad as they fight on three fronts though, and the defender will be hoping he is given his chance to impress between now and the end of the season.
