“Wouldn’t get on City’s bench” – Arsenal fans take a reality check over “The English Cafu”

Calum Chambers has been brought out of the cold at Arsenal in recent weeks and produced a man of the match performance in Sunday’s thrilling come back against West Ham.

The 26-year-old has endured a couple of Premier League loan spells with Fulham and Middlesbrough respectively, but never did enough to prove himself worthy of a starting spot upon his return.

Despite playing in numerous different positions, including centre back and holding midfield, he now looks to have found a home at right back in Mikel Arteta’s side.

His performance in Sunday’s 3-3 draw with West Ham should be enough to see him solidify a starting spot in Arteta’s team in their first game back against Liverpool after this months international break.

It’s only Chambers second appearance in the Premier League this season, with his other coming against Burnley at the beginning of the month.

Chambers ruptured a cruciate ligament which saw him sit out most of the first half of the season, but he has been fit since December, yet struggled for gametime.

It begs the question, just how highly does Arteta rate him?

Highly enough to start him, and with Hector Bellerin’s dip in form, it has been an opportunity to thrust Chambers in at the deep end and see how he handles it.

He may have passed Sunday’s test with flying colours, but Arsenal fans still aren’t convinced.
