Chambers eyeing centre-back role but happy to play wherever Arsenal need him

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has revealed that he sees himself as a centre-back in future but is happy to help out his team by playing in whichever position he is required to play.

The 21-year old has filled in as a defensive midfielder and at right-back for the Gunners in recent games and although his long-term future lies in the centre of defence, he is simply thrilled to be landing some game time under Arsene Wenger.

"It gives me an opportunity to play. If you can play different positions, then it can benefit you because you've got the knowledge," he said after scoring in Saturday's 2-1 FA Cup fourth round win over Burnley.

"I'm learning in training, watching players in my positions and recently I've started training in holding midfield and played a few games there. That was enjoyable as well.

"I still see myself as a centre-back. Maybe holding midfielder, but I see myself as a centre-back, really."
