Oxlade-Chamberlain scored the winner against Chelsea with a sensational individual effort after he skinned Cesar Azpilicueta before rifling a left-footed effort into the top corner with Thibaut Courtois left clutching at thin air.
Arteta certainly wasn’t surprised and claimed that the former Southampton academy product can produce those moments on a weekly basis, such are his unique talents.

“[The goal was] unbelievable, but Alex can do that every week if he wants to,” Arteta said about The Ox.
“He’s a terrific player, one of the best talents I’ve seen, and he’s got the world open for what he wants to do. It’s up to him.”

With Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott in the squad, Oxlade-Chamberlain must learn from the aforementioned duo and their ability to make darting runs off the ball.
When playing up against the best full-backs, relying solely on his dribbling qualities will not be enough to cause damage in the final third.
The timing of his runs off the ball can be improved and, with the creative talent we have in the squad, Oxlade-Chamberlain can definitely add more goals to his game by doing exactly that.
