Calum Chambers has opened the scoring at the Emirates this Saturday afternoon, beating Burnley shot-stopper Tom Heaton with a stunning outside of the boot strike to the far corner.
Arsene Wenger made a number of changes for the FA Cup clash, but kept a few senior faces in there to ensure we got the win. With a number of attacking threats such as Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, it was a surprise to see Chambers getting the goal.
Starting at right-back to give Hector Bellerin a rest, Chambers was regularly seen charging forward early on. He found himself the furthest man forward in one attack, and after being picked out by Alexis Sanchez he fired it into the far corner.
Check out the goal below:
It was a fantastic strike worthy of any top striker, which is why it was such a surprise to see it come from Chambers. He’s certainly not known for his goalscoring, although his lack of game time hasn’t helped that recently. His last Arsenal goal also came against Burnley, and they are clearly a team he enjoys playing against.

Unfortunately we conceded shortly after to level things up, and it was Chambers who lost his man during the cross. He could hardly be blamed for being beaten in the air by Sam Vokes, but it will certainly have put a dampener on his afternoon.
