Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was rumoured to be dating the Little Mix singer for a while now, but she made the news official on social media and the question has to be asked about them becoming the new Posh and Becks.

Here is the soon-to-be-infamous instagram post from Perrie Edwards:

There is no doubt that the former Manchester United player and his Spice Girl wife enjoyed a lot of success on the pitch and in the charts while also managing to spread the Beckham brand all over the world.

Does Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain need to embark in the same media circus and exposure at the time where is he fighting to get into the Arsenal starting 11?

With Sanchez, Walcott, Iwobi, Ramsey, Perez and potentially Wellbeck all vying for the two places on the Arsenal wings, that kind of distraction is not great for his football surely?

Oxlade-Chamberlain is a far more gifted players than Beckham ever was. The former England captain made himself great via a lot of hard work and dedication.

If this relationship pushes the Ox to work as hard as Beckham and realise his full potential that is great. No doubt, Posh Spice was a key element in pushing Beckham to thrive for excellence, but if it goes the other way with the celebrity status and circus, there will be a time soon when questions will be asked about selling him.

Managers are well known to like players to settle down and have a family so that they can concentrate on things that matter on the pitch rather than going out to party.

Let’s hope they will settle quickly and the Arsenal winger will put in the hard work needed to perform at the highest level for the club.
