Arsenal teenager hoping to make impact

Published Add your comment

Arsenal teenager Serge Gnabry hopes to use his fine display in the weekend victory over Tottenham as a platform from which to achieve a more regular place in the club's first-team.

The 18-year-old played a starring role against Spurs as the Gunners triumphed 2-0 to secure a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup, with Gnabry providing the assist for the opening goal scored by Santi Cazorla.

It was the eighth appearance Gnabry has made for the Arsenal seniors so far this season and the young winger is hopeful Arsene Wenger will include him more regularly as the campaign progresses.

"It was great to have been given a start in such a big game, and I am satisfied with my performance,'' Gnabry told reporters.

"I tried to have an impact going forwards and am happy that I could help the team to win with the assist for our first goal.

"I hope that I can show what I can do and that the team could need me, from then it is up to the manager.''

Arsenal, meanwhile, were handed a seemingly straightforward draw against Coventry City in the fourth round of the FA Cup, with the fixture to be played over the weekend of January 25 and 26.

The FA Cup was the last competition the Gunners won, back in 2005, and they are among the favourites to secure glory this year with Manchester United having fallen at the first hurdle and Manchester City facing a replay.
