Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says this past season has been a roller coaster.

The England international is confident he's learned from the setbacks he experienced.

"It has been an up and down season for me but I have learnt a lot," said ­Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"No-one knew what to ­expect from me in my first season at Arsenal and everything I did was a bonus. This season people expect you to continue in the same way, and so did I.

"I have made a few steps forward in certain areas of my game, and had a few setbacks that have helped me to learn.

"But I am happy with how my season has gone, and the way we finished with ­Arsenal. I'm really looking forward to next season.

"I'm still young, and every day I am involved with ­either Arsenal or England will help me."
