After making an indifferent start to the Arsenal career, Lukas Podolski has scored a number of important goals in the last few weeks. It has helped Arsenal remain in touch with the leaders at the top of the table. However, the last few games have been extremely difficult for the club because they have been unable to create any chances and have consequently lost the matches.
The 2-0 defeat against Schalke in the Champions League was a second consecutive defeat suffered by the club following the 1-0 defeat against Norwich during the weekend. Podolski said that it was an extremely difficult match and he was extremely disappointed to lose the home match. He said that there was little to separate the two teams, but the fact that Schalke took the chances that came their way made the difference. As a result of this defeat, Arsenal now face an uphill task to finish in the top spot in their group.
“I expect myself to be a key player. I want to convince everyone that I can play a big part. But we’re still at the beginning of the season and we’ve only had 10 or 11 games. I’ve signed for four years and I hope I can have a successful time here. It was a typical 0-0 game. We missed a chance to win at home and this is our own fault. We’re playing at home and we’re a top team,” said Lukas Podolski after the match. Arsenal will be hoping to end the consecutive defeats in the tough home fixture against QPR during the weekend.

The Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski has said that he is extremely delighted to have opened his account for Arsenal in the most impressive fashion. Arsenal are coming into the third match of the season against Liverpool having drawn both the opening matches, while also scoring none. However, they managed a respectable 2-0 win over the Merseyside club to open their account for the new season. Lukas Podolski has been a disappointment in the first matches, but his goal against Liverpool provided Arsenal fans with a glimpse of this quality. After the match, he has said that he is extremely happy to score his first goal for the club and hopes that it continues.
The 26-year-old German international also said that he wants to replace Robin van Persie as the main striker at the club. Robin van Persie was one of the main goal scorers of Arsenal in the last few seasons, while the last one was exceptional with 37 goals in all competitions. Podolski has already targeted the achievements of Robin van Persie at the club. He feels that his opening goal is extremely important because it will relieve a lot of pressure from his shoulders, while allowing him to perform well in the remaining matches.
“When I’m on the pitch, I can win matches. I’m very happy to score my first goal at Liverpool with their amazing fans and stadium. I’m also very happy that we won and got the three points. You must always work hard in matches. You must fight, you must run and you must score goals. e played very well in the first two matches. But when you don’t have the three points, the press write that you play no good,” said Podolski after the 2-0 win over Liverpool that condemned the Merseyside club to the relegation zone.

Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski has said that he is extremely confident that Arsenal can challenge for the Premier league title this season. The German international was signed by the manager Arsene Wenger as the replacement for star striker Robin van Persie, who is expected to complete his move to Manchester United in the next few days.
Arsenal have agreed a £ 24 million fee for the 29-year-old Dutchman, which represents great value for money given that he had only one season left on his current contract. Lukas Podolski has great experience at both club and international level, as he has represented the German national team in almost 100 matches.
He is expected to be the main striker at the club this season. It has been eight seasons since Arsenal last lifted the Premier league trophy. They are not the favourites to win the title this time around as well due to the presence of clubs like Manchester city, Chelsea and Manchester United. It is expected that Arsenal will be extremely happy to retain a place in the top four, which will give them the chance to compete in the Champions League next season.
However, Lukas Podolski has set his sights on winning the Premier league title this season, starting with the Sunderland and wolves fixtures.
“The Premier League has five or six teams who can play for the title and we are one of them. We really want to win this trophy and I hope I can score a lot of goals and make some assists to help the club in the Premier League. When you are a footballer you must be ready – you’re on the pitch to win. Whether it is against Koln or against Sunderland, you are a footballer and you must be ready to win matches,” said the player on the official website of the club.
Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has said that he is extremely happy with the signings that the club has made so far in the summer transfer window. Arsenal have secured the signings of German international Lukas Podolski for £ 10 million, while the French forward Olivier Giroud has also arrived at the club for a similar amount of money. Even though the star strikers Theo Walcott and Robin van Persie have been linked with a move away from the club, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has said that he cannot be more than satisfied with the purchases that the club has made so far. He has also said that he feels that the club can finally challenge for trophies once again.
It has been seven seasons since Arsenal last lifted the trophy. It has been one of the main reasons for many stars like Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri to leave the club in recent seasons, while Robin van Persie could be the next major star. However, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has said that players leaving the club is something that is normal and he is going to only focus on the new arrivals. The German international Lukas Podolski is the major talk of the town due to this experience and goalscoring abilities.
“He’s got 100 caps for Germany which is a massive achievement in itself. Giroud is a very good striker as well. He scores goals and brings quality to the side and that’s what we need. You’ve always got to bring in new players and they’re fantastic signings. I’ve met them and they’re both really good lads so I think we’ll get on really well this year and they’ll be really good to play with,” said the Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who made his debut for the England national team in a major tournament at the Euro 2012.
