Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Wants his side to maintain form

With eight wins in their last ten matches, the Gunners have overtaken bitter north London rivals Tottenham and sit third in the Premier League table.

However, this all seemed a distant dream at the beginning of March when goals from Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale secured Spurs victory in the derby clash at White Hart Lane, leaving their neighbours languishing in fifth.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has seen it all before, and urged his side to repeat last season's end of season form and clinch a Champions League qualification spot.

"It seems to be the Arsenal way," Chamberlain told Sky Sports News.

"We have to turn it around, we did it last season, and need to do it again.

"We just have to take each game as it comes, work together as a team, and hopefully we will get there."

The England winger has struggled to hold down a starting berth in the Gunners side.

However, with Olivier Giroud now suspended for three games, it may be Oxlade-Chamberlain's time to shine, but he is remaining grounded.

"Just being here, at a club like Arsenal, I am loving every minute of it," he added.

"To be involved with England, playing a few games, that's the motivation I need."

"I am hungry for more."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
