Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain relished his matchwinner in the Community Shield at Wembley .

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was delighted with his matchwinner against Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley - and he’s hoping he can get more of that in the 2015/16 season.

The Gunners ran out 1-0 winners over the Premier League champions, as Chamberlain scored a sublime goal to give Arsene Wenger’s side the win.

And after the tie, the 21–year-old told Arsenal Player: "I don't know about 'wondergoal' but it was really nice to see that one go in.

"I got a goal in the Emirates Cup, and it's what I need to do this year, there's no doubting that and I'm not afraid to say that I need to score more goals.

"I've set myself that target this year on a personal level so every time I'm on the pitch it's important that I try and contribute in some way and a goal or an assist is what I need to do. It was really nice to [score on Sunday] and as it's the winner it's that little bit more special.

"All-round we played really well," added Oxlade-Chamberlain. "We didn't play our best stuff with the ball, I think Chelsea deserve credit for that, they are a great defensive side, and they stopped us from playing at time.

"But we did enough, we defended really well as a team and kept them to minimal chances. That's really positive going into the season because in the big games that's what it comes down to sometimes.

"I have absolute faith and confidence in this team and I think that can be shared throughout the squad. As a group of players we’ve been together for a good number of years, so there’s a real team spirit and sense of togetherness."
