'Beckham-esque': Some Arsenal fans wowed by 'underrated baller' who shone against Millwall
Some Arsenal fans have been raving about Calum Chambers’ display in Saturday’s pre-season friendly victory over Millwall
The Gunners ran out 4-1 winners against the Southeast London outfit at Colney, with Chambers opening the scoring.
He tapped home after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang rattled the woodwork with an overhead kick.
The 25-year-old also provided a superb assist, crossing in for Alexandre Lacazette to head home.
Arsenal were due to play in the Florida Cup but had to cancel their participation in the competition.
Therefore, they had to arrange replacement friendlies, and on Saturday, they took on the Lions.
The game took place behind closed doors – indeed, a reported scoreline was doing the rounds on Twitter.
Arsenal then streamed the game on their website at 4pm BST, and the reported scoreline and scorers turned out to be correct.
As well as scoring and assisting, Chambers showed his versatility by moving to centre-back after Pablo Mari went off.
“Looks like a serious player”
It’s amazing to think Chambers’ Arsenal career was reportedly hanging by a thread last year.
Now, he looks set to be an indispensable player in the Gunners squad.
Here is what some Arsenal fans were saying about Chambers’ display against Millwall on Twitter:

Chambers needs to start on the opening day man, hes so clear of bellerin and cedric— AH (@afc_ah2) July 24, 2021
Unpopular opinion: chambers should be our starting RB for the new season— ™️ (@KxvinAFC) July 24, 2021
Let's not buy an RB , Chambers is good 😆 #AFC— Mr Minutes (@paul_makwasha) July 24, 2021
Does Callum Chambers ever put in a bad cross— Pierce (@PR_AFC) July 24, 2021
If we can’t find a good RB this summer to replace Bellerin then we should just go with Chambers as first choice. I’d rather that than signing someone who isn’t good enough, there’s not much on the market right now.— David (@DavidAFC__) July 24, 2021
underrated baller, his technical ability is so so good. Really happy he's finally getting his chances at Arsenal.— KS (@sheth_happens) July 24, 2021
