Arsenal winger Oxlade-Chamberlain can handle Walcott comparison

Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has no problem being compared with Theo Walcott.

There are inevitably comparisons being made between the new boy and Walcott, who made the move to Arsenal as a 17-year-old in 2006 and Oxlade-Chamberlain says that he wants to use his flair.

He said: "I'm quite confident to take people on - if there's a one against one I'll definitely take it on if I feel I can get a cross in or set someone up.

"If there's a shot on I like to take the opportunity as well, and I like passing the ball - which is one of the reasons I came to Arsenal.

"But I'm a player that likes to come up with an end product - whether that's a goal, an assist or helping the team to get good results."
