Oxlade-Chamberlain happy with winning Arsenal comeback

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was delighted with his comeback in Arsenal's FA Cup win against Coventry City.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was delighted with his comeback in Arsenal's FA Cup win against Coventry City.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was also back in the starting XI against Coventry following his own long lay-off after suffering a serious knee injury on the first day of the season.

The 20-year-old came through 71 minutes, having made his return as a late substitute against Fulham last weekend.

The combative midfielder hopes he can now push on for the rest of the campaign, which could end with a place in England's World Cup squad.

"I am not match fit yet and in the second half that showed a little bit in my performance, but that will come," he said on the club's official website.

"That's a stepping stone in the right direction for me and with a few more starts I should be back to match fitness."
