Wenger: Why I like Campbell

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hailed Joel Campbell's individual and team qualities, as the forward looks set to face Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday.

The Gunners will play the Owls at Hillsborough Stadium as they look to advance in the League Cup, and Wenger is hoping the Costa Rica international takes his chance to impress.

"I like Joel Campbell very much for two reasons," Wenger told his club's official website. "One is that he has outstanding individual quality, but he is also a team player. He works very hard for the team.

"I'm convinced he will get a chance here and that he will take it. He has another opportunity against Sheffield Wednesday and I'm hopeful that he will show that he has the quality to play for Arsenal.

"When you get the chance, you have to be ready. To be ready, you have to prepare. I must say that Joel Campbell and Calum Chambers are two players who do absolutely everything right.

"They are prepared, the preparation they have created will give them the confidence against Sheffield Wednesday and I'm confident they will play well."
