Arsenal boss Wenger: Oxlade-Chamberlain getting stronger

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was delighted with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's performance in their EFL Cup win over Nottingham Forest.

He was sluggish in the opening stages of last night's 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup third round but put in a decent shift after the half-time break and scored in extra time.

Wenger said: "He's in good form at the moment, physically.

"It's the first time in a long period that he has been ready to compete and he had a little bit of a slow start in this game but became stronger and stronger.

"I was very pleased for him with the way he finished the game."
