Arsene Wenger has backed two men who will most likely be given a chance in the Capital One Cup game against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday evening.
Calum Chambers and Joel Campbell have been bit part players so far this season, but the manager believes this competition is a chance for them to get some playing time, and to show their quality.
On the former Southampton man, he believes his versatility will prove beneficial in his career.
“Calum can play in midfield, he can play central defender,” he said. “I think in the future he will certainly be a central defender, but he can also play right back.
“That versatility will help him in the future because he will tactically know more about the game, he will be technically better prepared and physically he will be at the top, top level.
“I’m confident that Calum will be a successful England player.”
And speaking about the Costa Rican forward, who has really struggled to make any kind of impact in his time at the club, he said, “I like Joel Campbell very much for two reasons. One is that he has outstanding individual quality, but he is also a team player.
“He works very hard for the team. I’m convinced he will get a chance here and that he will take it. He has another opportunity against Sheffield Wednesday and I’m hopeful that he will show that he has the quality to play for Arsenal.”
