Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says his Champions League strike against Olympiacos was his personal highlight of 2011.

The 18-year-old announced himself on the European stage when the Greek side visited Emirates Stadium in September with a goal that made him the competition’s youngest ever English goalscorer.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has enjoyed a successful year on all fronts and the youngster does not want it to stop here.

“I'd probably say scoring my goal in the Champions League [was the highlight], that was a big moment for me,” he told Arsenal Player.

“I have to say I have three, though. It's that one, signing for Arsenal and the last day at Southampton when we got promoted. That was one of the best experiences of my life.

“All I'm really focused on is getting into the Arsenal team; I just want to play, express myself and show what I can do. There's a lot more hard work for me to and I will keep working hard to do that.

“That's my only ambition at the moment, to push onto 2012 and look to finish the season strongly with the team. Hopefully we can carry on doing well in the league and keep improving to get higher up the table.”
