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.
