Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has likened Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Manchester United star Wayne Rooney.
The 18-year-old picked out Robin van Persie for Arsenal's goal in that 2-1 defeat and Wenger saw shades of Rooney in the teenager's display.
"He looks to have [the same fearlessness]," he told arsenal.com.
"Now he has to show that he can play all the time but I believe he can. We have produced more players in the last 15 years than all of the top clubs in Europe put together and we are not scared to play players when they are of the level. I believe he has [that level]."
