Oxlade-Chamberlain happy with Arsenal central role

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is happy to play centrally for Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger has suggested that Oxlade-Chamberlain's best position may be in the middle of the pitch, rather than out wide.

And the England man, 20, said: "If I am in midfield I will still be the player who drives forward with the ball or makes a run.

"For me, that will always be a part of my game. In midfield, you just need to be more careful when you do that and know when to sit back and help out the team.

"Jack Wilshere does that really well for us and for England as well."
