Calum Chambers has praised the character of Arsenal’s performance at White Hart Lane last night as the Gunners overcome the old enemy to reach the 4th round of the Capital One Cup.
Having been dragged level by a Chambers own goal, Arsenal found a fantastic winner from Mathieu Flamini and held off Pochettino’s side to win out at the Lane.
The performance drew praise from the 20 year old, who said, “Together as a team we knew our jobs and we defended well.
“We were 1-0 up and then they came back to 1-1 so I think we showed a lot of character to keep our faith, keep our composure, keep playing and get the result by getting a goal to get the win.
“We fought well, kept our discipline throughout the game and ground out a result. You want to get good results and build up momentum so hopefully we can take what we learnt into the next game.”
Chambers has been credited the own goal last night, the FA have ruled on Chelsea’s second goal at Stamford Bridge, attributing it as an own goal and not an Eden Hazard strike. Even with that though, he performed well in both games and it’s good to see him get some of his confidence back.
So that’s two OGs for Calum in the last week, on top of 3 red cards. It can only get better from here, right?! Oh, wait, it already did:
