‘Can’t believe people wanted him sold’: Some Arsenal fans wowed by player’s Europa League display

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to praise Calum Chambers’ performance in the Gunners’ Europa League quarter-final second-leg win last night.

The 26-year-old has been at Arsenal since 2014, when he joined from Southampton in a reported £16million move.

Sadly, he missed out on the whole of 2020 due to a cruciate ligament injury, which came just as he was getting his Gunners career back on track.

However, Chambers is now fully fit again and Mikel Arteta’s decision to play him at right-back has proven a masterstroke for the player and the club.

Against Slavia Prague, he was named in Arsenal’s starting XI on the right side of defence, keeping both Hector Bellerin and Cedric Soares on the bench.

And Chambers delivered a solid display in the Czech capital, defending well, providing a great outlet on the flank, and providing the assist for Bukayo Saka’s goal.

Needless to say, Arsenal fans were delighted not only with how he’s playing, but how he’s turned his career around.

Here is some of the reaction on social media:

 

Nicolas Pepe opened the scoring on 18 minutes, and Alexandre Lacazette netted a brace – his second a penalty – either side of Saka’s 24th-minute effort.

Arsenal’s 4-0 victory in Prague sees them go through 5-1 on aggregate and book a semi-final tie with Villarreal, managed by former Gunners boss Unai Emery.

The first leg takes place in Spain on April 29, before the return leg at the Emirates on May 6.
