It was another successful season for Alex, who produced his most prolific return in terms of both goals and assists in 2016/17.

The England international scored six times in all competitions, and added 11 assists, including all three in the two games against Manchester United and the cross for Nacho Monreal’s equaliser in the Emirates FA Cup semi-final.

The Ox also showed his incredible versatility during the campaign, playing in no fewer than seven different positions. Commonly found on the right wing for much of his Gunners career to date, he switched seamlessly to right wing back towards the end of last season, though he also featured in central midfield, left wing, right back and left back.

A fast, tricky player who is at his best when running at defenders, Alex has a fearsome shot on him, with many of his Arsenal goals coming from outside the area.

After making his international debut as a teenager in May 2012, he was part of England’s European Championship squad, and a year later he scored against Brazil in the official reopening of the Maracana Stadium.

Previously with Southampton, he was the Saints’ second ever youngest player when making his debut aged 16 years and 199 days, and was named in eth league One PFA Team of the Year in 2010/11.

His father Mark Chamberlain was also an England international in the early 1980s.
