Oxlade-Chamberlain Fires Gunners into First

MOST COMMENTED

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain celebrated his return to the Arsenal starting lineup by scoring both goals in the Gunners’ 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday. The win propelled the Gunners back to the summit of the English Premier League and extended the club’s unbeaten streak to 10 games in all competitions, including an eighth win in its last nine games.

Man-of-the-match Oxlade-Chamberlain played alongside Mikel Arteta in central midfield. After the game, he told Sky Sports 1: "It's something I want to add to my game -- more goals -- so it was nice to get two today. It's always an amazing feeling to score a goal and especially at a stadium like the Emirates and I'm glad I can help the team with two goals."

The 20-year-old England international only recently returned from a serious knee injury -- which had sidelined him since August -- as he fired home his first two goals of the season for the Gunners. "It was really nice to get a start. Obviously it was my first start since my injury on the first day of the season it was nice to get out there and in the midfield - it's nice that the boss has faith in me there."

Arsenal is currently first in the Premier League table, two points ahead of second-place Manchester City, and five points ahead of third-place Chelsea, which square off against each other at the Etihad on Monday.
