Reports are out claiming that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has made a point of scoring more goals for Arsenal following his winner in the Community Shield on Sunday.
The 21-year-old attacking midfielder lashed home a stunning left-footed strike in the 24th minute to give the Gunners a 1-0 win over Chelsea in the annual pre-season match at Wembley.
After the triumph, in which Oxlade-Chamberlain was named Man of the Match, the England international made clear his plans to be a more frequent scorer while also highlighting the impact of summer signing Petr Cech who kept a clean sheet against his former club at headquarters.
“Today was a big game for us and we wanted to lay down a marker for our manager and our fans,” said ‘The Ox’.
“I want to contribute more goals this season, it’s a target I’ve set for myself, and of course I’m happy to have got the goal today.
“This squad’s been together for a good number of years now, and with the signing of Petr Cech we’ve been lifted.
“He’s such an amazing player and has already shown what a good signing he is.
“There is a really good feeling about this season but you never want to speak too soon. The real work starts next week.”
