Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is happy to be compared with teammate Theo Walcott.

Both are in the England squad this week.

"Theo is a brilliant player, so I don’t really mind getting compared to him," Oxlade-Chamberlain said.

"He really helps me out a lot and has done ever since I stepped into Arsenal and coming away with England.

"This season he has been really good for Arsenal, scoring a lot of goals, which is what I am trying to add to my game, so I can learn from him in that sense.

"But I don’t really look at it in terms of what he has done and what I am doing, I just focus on what I need to do to achieve the goals I set for myself."
