The 22-year-old, alongside Spaniards Mikel Arteta and Hector Bellerin, discussed their various beliefs and traditions before games for the north Londoners, with some stranger than others.
Arsenal's recent upsurge in form has been a result of anything but luck, given their emphatic and clinical displays against Leicester City and Manchester United in recent weeks, but that hasn't stopped the trio from carrying out their beliefs before every game.

'The Ox' said: "My weirdest superstition - I have a few - is that I never walk over an odd number of drains, but if it's an even number of drains I'll walk over it. I [also] don't walk under ladders."
Few football fans will have noticed, though, that the England international enters the pitch in the same fashion each game.
"Before I come onto the pitch, I take three hops on my left foot - two small hops and one big hop. I don't know why I do any of them."
Arteta and Bellerin also revealed their traditions before the game, with the former's perhaps the more obvious given his renowned immaculate appearance.
"I have so many before a game - the way I get dressed; get prepared; what I eat. It's a big process."
Likewise, Bellerin prepares with a regular routine.
"I always put my right sock in my right boot before my left."
Arsenal fans will hope that should such superstitions hold any effect - which they probably don't, let's face it - the Gunners' luck won't run dry this season, amidst their bid to claim their first Premier League title in 11 years.
