‘He should be loaned out’ – Twitter attacks Arsenal star despite Everton win
Despite an almost perfect week for Arsenal, one player attracted more criticism than plaudits after Saturday’s 2-1 win over Everton.
When available, Aaron Ramsey has often been preferred to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at right wing but after initial complaints about Arsene Wenger’s tactics, most fans are beginning to side with the manager’s choice.
That is because Oxlade-Chamberlain was deemed culpable for goals conceded in defeats against West Ham and Dinamo Zagreb before he lost possession ahead of Ross Barkley’s goal.
Whether it is down to bad luck or just bad form, the former Southampton youngster is now being labeled as a defensive liability when handed a start.
Here were the different reactions to the 22-year-old’s ‘error’ on Saturday.
he did this vs Monaco, he did this vs West Ham and he's done it today. Oxlade Chamberlain

Oxlade chamberlain needs a loan move. Wilshere, Ramsey, Coquelin all benefited from it, never understood why the Ox hasn't #AFCvEFC

It baffles me why we've never tried to sort out a loan for Oxlade-Chamberlain, loads of teams would want him.

Too many of Oxlade Chamberlain's errors have led directly to goals against us this season. I guess it's down to bad luck or maybe reluctance

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain shouldn't be blamed for that goal. It was just unlucky. He tried to recover it, but Arsenal are the kings of banter.

Personally I think Oxlade Chamberlain really good in attacking as he offer speed and pace to team. However his defensive rate little bit low

Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere. Zero development since they came onto the scene.

Oxlade-Chamberlain shows in his sub performances that he should get a start, but when he does, he just doesn't deliver that impact

Only negative to come out of this week for Arsenal is oxlade-chamberlain…has all the tools but it's just not happening for him

Oxlade Chamberlain threw another performance that makes you wonder why people complain about Ramsey on the right.

Oxlade-Chamberlain needs run of games to get any rhythm going. All very stop-start at the moment. Could replace Alexis, who needs a breather
