Chambers enjoying changing roles

Cape Town - English defender Calum Chambers insists he is only benefiting from playing in different roles across Arsenal’s back four.

The 19-year-old has already staked his claim at centre back and right back this season with impressive performances in the absence of Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielney and Mathieu Debuchy. 

After serving his one-match suspension against Galatasaray, Chambers could return at centre back against Liverpool on Sunday - and he says switching positions is something he is familiar with.

“It’s been a good experience for me,” he told Arsenal Player.

“I’ve always found myself switching positions from a young age so it’s nothing that I’m not used to.

“I really enjoyed my time at centre half at the start of the season and then unfortunately Mathieu Debuchy got injured, which meant I went to right back and I’ve enjoyed my time there as well.

“[Getting forward more] is the part of the game I enjoy at right back - I like getting forward, I like getting involved far up the pitch and that’s the way we get taught how to play here at Arsenal.

“At some point I will have to settle in a place but until that time, wherever I’m put I will give it 100 per cent and I just enjoy playing football. Whatever position that may be, I’ll give it my best shot.”
