This weekend, Calum Chambers was once again deployed in Arsenal’s midfield and the youngster put in another great performance.

Showing a great ability on the ball as well as an eye for a pass and the ability to read the game, he is developing well and it is clear that his future does indeed lie as the deepest-lying midfielder, something I’m not sure many of us would have said when he first arrived at the club disguised as a right-back who could play in the middle.

Taking to Twitter after the game, Chambers revealed that he is starting to really enjoy the role, no doubt more so now he has gotten over any initial nerves he might have had over playing there in the first place.

Quite what the immediate future holds for him is not entirely clear. Mikel Arteta is fit (for now), Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin will return as will Jack Wilshere while Mohamed Elneny is on his way.

I guess it’s up to him to show the boss that he deserves to be in there ahead of all of them and with most of them not expected back for a few weeks at least, he has Arsene Wenger’s undivided attention.
