Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has stated on Twitter that he is “focused” for the north London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.
The 23-year-old winger was named on the bench for the showdown despite playing 77 minutes during the 4-1 thumping of Sunderland last Saturday.
Nonetheless, England international Oxlade-Chamberlain will be hoping his side can secure a vital three points at the Emirates Stadium.
He posted this message on his personal Twitter account:
Versatile attacker Oxlade-Chamberlain has played 14 Premier League, Champions League and EFL Cup games this term scoring five and assisting three.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has started four of his eight Premier League games this season, with Alex Iwobi and Walcott keeping him out of the team.
A win for Arsenal would take them top of the Premier League table on 26 points, but a victory for Spurs would mean they would go level with the Gunners going into the international break.
