'I felt that I had to put things right'

Calum Chambers could not have timed his first goal of the season any better.

The England defender was a half-time substitute during Sunday's win over Aston Villa and produced a moment of magic to bring us back into the game, expertly finishing past Tom Heaton to level the scores.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would go on to complete our comeback with an unstoppable free-kick, and Chambers is delighted that we were able to keep all three points in north London.

"I’m very pleased," he said. "I hold my hand up for their second goal it was a sloppy first touch from me and I felt that I had to put things right. Luckily I did and got a goal and the team stuck in there and worked very hard and we deserved the win in the end.

"It was massive for us as a club, as a team and for everyone. We’ve got the quality and we showed we have the spirit today, we dug in deep at times and we just want to build on that, keep the momentum going and on to the next one.

"Aubameyang’s very key," Chambers added. "He’s a quality striker and a lot of the players on this team are quality, so to have him at the top of the team, scoring the goals is brilliant for us.

"The young players are doing superb, too. There’s so much young talent in this squad, it’s amazing. They’re getting their chance to show what they can do, as we’ve seen today and in the Europa League, they’re getting their chances and taking it so it’s great to see them coming through."
