Oxlade-Chamberlain says Arsenal squad can handle defensive injury crisis

Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says they can cover their defensive injuries.

Oxlade-Chamberlain says the quality on offer in the Arsenal squad means that any number of players can fill in.

"I think it's a handicap for any team when you've got four full backs out - two left backs and two right backs. It's not ideal for any team but there are a lot of boys that can fill in," he told Arsenal Player.

"You've seen Thomas Vermaelen and Ignasi Miquel both do really well. With Carl and Bac out on the right, Johan's filled in really well and obviously he's picked up a little niggle now.

"But the boys have the quality to do that, everybody understands everybody else's roles. If they don't play week in, week out they still understand - everybody at Arsenal is a quality player.

"I'm sure the boss will find somebody good enough to do the job."
