He has even drawn comparisons to the impact Wayne Rooney made on English football with his fearless brand of football and the excitement he has generated. Oxlade-Chamberlain has been thrilling fans and the media since Alan Pardew gave him his first-team debut at just 16. Arsenal captain Robin van Persie rates his teammate highly:
