‘Clear of Holding’, ‘needed in the squad’: Some Arsenal fans hail one player’s U23s display last night

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to praise Calum Chambers for his goalscoring exploits for the Gunners Under-23s on Friday night.

The 25-year-old joined Arsenal in the summer of 2014 for a reported fee of up to £16million, and has made 101 competitive appearances for the Gunners.

However, Chambers hasn’t played senior football since last December, when he suffered a serious knee injury during the first half of the Premier League loss to Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium.

The England international, who was one of Arsenal’s star men before Arteta’s arrival, has since returned to action for the Under-23s, featuring in the Premier League 2 and the EFL Trophy.

Chambers started for Steve Bould’s side in Friday night’s Premier League 2 game against Leicester City’s U23s and opened the scoring on 13 minutes, netting on the rebound after Folarin Balogun’s effort was saved.

The Foxes equalised before the end of the half through Darragh O’Connor but Balogun’s superb second-half finish edged Arsenal back in front, going on to win 2-1 and make it four victories in a row.

Here is what some Arsenal fans were saying on social media about Chambers’ display on the night:
