Arsenal enjoyed a comfortable night in the Carabao Cup against Nottingham Forest, running out 5-0 winners at Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners secured the win thanks to goals from Gabriel Martinelli (2), Rob Holding, Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson.
It ensured an easy night’s work for Unai Emery’s men and they will now face Manchester United with their confidence sky-high.
Emery made 11 changes to his starting line-up following Sunday’s 3-2 win over Aston Villa and that meant a first start since the opening weekend of the campaign for Calum Chambers.
The 24-year-old came in for the suspended Ainsley Maitland-Niles and did a superb job at right-back.
Remarkably the £50,000-a-week (Spotrac) performer created three assists last night adding to the crucial goal which he scored on Sunday.
On current form, he is showcasing to Emery exactly what he can bring to the team and following the game he took to Twitter to show his delight:
Thursday • Europa League • 3-0 • clean sheet ✅
Sunday • Premier League come back • goal ✅
Today • Carabao Cup win • 3 assists & clean sheet ✅
Pretty happy right now 😂👌🏼 pic.twitter.com/1BRXoVO3om
— Calum Chambers (@CalumChambers95) September 24, 2019
Chambers has three England caps to his name and after losing his way a little bit he will hope this recent resurgence is the start of a revival.
Loan spells with Middlesbrough and Fulham weren’t overly successful but he now appears to have a lifeline with Arsenal.
His versatility makes him a useful asset for Emery.
He is showing right now that he can fill in and do a job at right-back; whilst last season he spent a lot of time playing in the holding midfield role for the Cottagers.
Emery isn’t blessed with lots of defensive options and Chambers coming into form can only bode well for the Gunners boss.
With Manchester United up next, you wouldn’t bet against the former Southampton man having an impact on that game either.
