Redknapp likens Arsenal starlet Oxlade-Chamberlain to Man Utd star Rooney

Former Tottenham star Jamie Redknapp has likened Arsenal starlet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Wayne Rooney.

Oxlade-Chamberlain finished on the losing side against Manchester United last night.

But Redknapp wrote in the Daily Mail: "At Arsenal, it was all about something old and something new. Ryan Giggs, 38, ran the first half and then Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made his mark.

"He could be Arsenal's Rooney; he plays in a different role but has the same body shape and strength. When Rooney burst on the scene, he was a boy with a man's body. The explosive Ox is similar."
