Arsenal youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is eager to carry on the good form for the coming season and insists he is always keen to excite the Arsenal fans.
The 19-year-old has enjoyed a successful first season at the Emirates after being bought from Southampton for £12m in 2011. The youngster made 16 league appearances last season scoring twice.
His good performances for the club earned him a place in Roy Hodgson’s squad for the Euro 2012 and has impressed with limited opportunities he got.
Speaking to Arsenal player he said “You just have to look at somebody like [Lionel] Messi,”
“Whenever I watch him play, I am expecting him to do something amazing.
“I like to take people on and be an exciting player, that is just my game. People expect you to be exciting all the time but sometimes you just have those matches where that side of the game is not coming off or you are working harder to defend for the team and keep it simple.
“Then some people might think ‘oh, he didn’t play well today’ because they are expecting you to take players on all the time.
“But everybody in the team has got massive expectations on them. Every time we step on to the pitch we are trying to do our best because we have a massive responsibility to try to get results.
“I wouldn’t say you think about it too much because it is all part of your job and you have to deal with it. More than anything, I put that expectation upon myself.”
