Teenager Serge Gnabry is confident he can have an impact for Arsenal this season.
The 18-year-old midfielder impressed as he was brought back into the starting XI for the 2-0 FA Cup third-round win over Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, where his determined run helped set up Santi Cazorla's opening goal.
Gunners vice-captain Mikel Areta has described the combative German as "like a little boxer", and manager Arsene Wenger is confident Arsenal youth product Gnabry has what it takes to make it at the highest level.
For now, though, Gnabry - who has a total of nine appearances this season, scoring his first senior goal in the Barclays Premier League win at Swansea - is taking things very much in his stride.
"It was great to have been given a start in such a big game, and I am satisfied with my performance," Gnabry said.
"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."
Gnabry feels he can provide a different option for Arsenal, linking up well with Theo Walcott, who was deployed in a central attacking role against Spurs but suffered a knee injury late on which could sidelined him for a month.
"I have learned a lot from Theo Walcott," Gnabry continued.
"We both are intelligent players and we know what the other will do."
