The England international appreciates that his role in the team is in an advanced one and that he needs to start finding the net more.

“I think I’m one of the more attack-minded players in the squad,” Oxlade-Chamberlain told Sky Sports.

“I think I’m one of the players in the squad who has that responsibility going forward and creating opportunities.

“I think there’s definitely more to come from me on that front though – I won’t hide from that – [I need more] goals and assists.

“For me that’s what I want to keep trying to improve on.”

Since joining the Gunners from Southampton in 2011 the midfielder has scored just 11 times in 104 appearances for the North London club and perhaps more surprisingly, never away from the Emirates Stadium.

At 21-years-old Oxlade-Chamberlain still has plenty of time to hone his skills and is impressive just how much the Englishman has already achieved in his relatively short career.

With more than a century of games for Arsene Wenger’s side and 20 caps for England the midfield ace is already an established figure for club and country, but the lack of goals is clearly something that is on the former Saints man’s mind.
