The England international winger is confident Arsenal can cope without Olivier Giroud after the forward was ruled out until the New Year with a broken leg.

“It is a massive blow for us because Olivier is a great player,” said Oxlade-Chamberlain.

“But there are players in the squad who can fill that role.

“Alexis Sanchez played absolutely unbelievably last night. I did not realise a man as small as him could hold the ball up so well against big defenders. We have got Yaya Sanogo, who is chomping at the bit in training, and Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell too. We have got Theo Walcott to come back from injury as well. Whoever is playing up front, I am sure they will be confident of filling that role.”
