The Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski has said that he has developed a as a player in the last few weeks and will be looking to prove his worth for Arsenal as long as he stays with the London club. 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.
