Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain felt his side were at their free-flowing best during their 5-1 away English Premier League win at West Ham United on Saturday, with Oxlade-Chamberlain scoring the Gunners’ fourth in that game.
“Yeah, it felt like that, especially second half,” he said. “It seemed like we were flowing.
“The game opened up a bit and when we were going forward we looked like we were all in sync.

“I’m really happy in the end to get on the scoresheet,” he added.
“Once you start getting one goal or opportunities open up, your hunger for it grows even more and I think I’ve seen that over the years in Alexis. He scores two and he’s unhappy he hasn’t scored a hat-trick.
“That was almost the way I was feeling today. After I scored my first I was keen to go and score a second and a third. That’s what you need, you need that hunger to keep pushing you to strive to do better.”
Arsenal are currently in second place and the league’s top scorers, with 33 goals in 14 games.Embed from Getty Images
