Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Forgets Title Rivals Manchester City Are Facing Chelsea

Manchester City face Chelsea on Monday evening, but you wouldn't know it if you lived in the Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain household.

The midfielder conducted a post-match interview with Sky Sports immediately after his two goals had lifted Arsenal to a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was asked about a range of subjects, including the big game at the Etihad on Monday night, and his response was interesting to say the least.

Oxlade-Chamberlain could well end up with a friend on his sofa to watch the likes of Coronation Street and Eastenders, as team-mate Wojciech Szczesny has revealed he does not pay any interest to Premier League games.

Speaking to Arsenal's official website, the Pole said: 

"I try not to watch games at home. I try to focus on my own football and my own team. I don't watch football very often.

If it's a big Champions League game then I watch it but Premier League... not really."

But reflecting on the size of the game, Szczesny added: "Of course we know it's a big game for the table, we know that Man City have had a fantastic record at home so they will be favourites. I might make an exception and watch this one at home."

Maybe the pair will watch the football and record the soaps for later.
