Having made his first Premier League start for Arsenal since the opening day of last season, Calum Chambers has declared himself pleased to be back out on the pitch for the Gunners.
The 22 year old signed a new contract early this season, a show of faith in him from the club, and he had a solid performance overall in a back three.
It’s a position he says he feels comfortable in, but also that he can play in a central defensive duo too – the subtext being he’s not a full back or a wing back.
“That’s the position I like, the right side of a back three,” he said, “or if we play a back four then the right side of that, those are the positions I like centrally.
“The amount of games I get, the more experience I get and more nights like tonight it’s just great experience for the whole team really.”
Having had his season interrupted by injury, Chambers is just happy to be given the nod by Arsene Wenger, and to get a full game under his belt.
“It was great to be back out there,” he said. “It has been a bit of a frustrating start to the season for me, having been injured for quite a lot of it, so I’m glad to be back out there and to get the 90 minutes as well.
“We dug in deep and we had to fight for those three points. It’s really pleasing, so I just want to work on that and improve going on from there.”
