“It’s the worst feeling to be fair… for every footballer to be out of the team. And yeah, in the last couple of months, I was struggling a lot but I hope everything is in the past already. And now, I’m fully focused and so excited for the rest of the season.”

Arsenal face off with West Ham on Boxing Day in their first competitive game since the World Cup.

The Gunners head into the game sat five points clear atop of the Premier League after a superb start.
