We need to match our opponent’s physicality - Oxlade-Chamberlain
Arsenal midfielder, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, has said that it is important for his team to match their opponent’s physicality.
The Gunners beat Stoke City3-0 at the Emirates on Sunday despite having to put up an extra hard effort.
Oxlade-Chamberlain was pleased with the way his team had played, saying that they stood up to the challenges they faced.
“Sometimes you have to roll your sleeves up, be physical and win the duels,” he said on Arsenal’s official website.
“We need to take this approach in every game because once we match teams physically and defending-wise, it gives us a good chance. We know in our team we have got the quality going forward to cause damage. So it is always important to make sure we match teams physically and do the dirty stuff as well.”
