Arsenal fans took to social media to heap praise on defender Calum Chambers for his standout performance against Bournemouth on Sunday.
The Englishman was handed his fourth start of the season against the Cherries, and was excellent filling in at right-back.
As was the case against Manchester United last week, Chambers was preferred to Ainsley Maitland-Niles, with Hector Bellerin not making the squad.
The 24-year-old was a shining light for Arsenal, who did struggle in the final third against the south coast club.
The Gunners attack wasn’t firing on all cylinders, but at least they could rely on their defence – which has been questioned on numerous occasions this season – and in particular, Chambers.
Arguably it was his best performance for Arsenal this season, and he has certainly staked his claim to be a regular going forwards.
That said, with Bellerin working his way back to full fitness, perhaps opportunities at right-back are set to deplete.
Arsenal fans react
Arsenal fans were delighted with the performance of Chambers at the Emirates Stadium, with many of the belief he was the team’s best player on the day:
Calum Chambers was faultless today. Solid in the tackle, used the ball very well, created a fantastic chance for Aubameyang & cleared off the line to keep us ahead. Not to mention that he’s not even a natural right back. He’s been one of our best performers so far this year.

Calum Chambers = 100% commitment

Chambers with another solid performance. Cannot wait for him to be benched for 8 games straight for no reason now.

We were comfortable most of that match. Callum Chambers brilliant technically. We had two shots on target as did Bournemouth. That will be worrying. But three points and third going into the international break and we will grab that. Just a point of City. #MaGunners #AFC #coyg
