Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger feels Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a natural after their thrashing of Blackburn Rovers.

Oxlade-Chamberlain played like top flight football was a treat to be enjoyed, not a burden to be feared.

"I feel that is always a brand of top players," said Wenger. "They just play.

"When you saw Rooney start he played like it was natural; the same with (Cesc) Fabregas. They are happy on the football pitch and comfortable.

"I feel Oxlade-Chamberlain could play central midfield (and) he could play second striker because he has something that is exceptional - he has a short back-lift and so when he has a shot on goal it's difficult to block.

"He can go right and left and he is the kind of guy who feels comfortable on the football pitch, not nervous."
