Calum Chambers believes he has grown on and off the pitch since joining Arsenal.
The defender has established himself in Arsenal’s first-team squad, making 28 appearances in all competitions, and has been capped by England.
Chambers turned 20 on Tuesday and feels that playing in Europe has helped him to develop.
“I think I’ve matured a lot,” he told the official Arsenal Magazine. “I’ve worked on my game, I’ve watched a lot of my performances back and I’ve gained a lot of experience both in playing in the Premier League and in Europe.
“I think I’ve added a lot to my game, which is good. I just want to keep working hard and keep learning from each match I play.
“I’ve played a lot and I’ve been happy with the first half of the season. I’m confident in my own ability and I hope the coaches and the fans are happy with my performances.
“Now I have to keep that going in the second half of the season - carry on enjoying my football and building on what I’ve done in my first six months here.”
