Arsenal attacker Nacer Barazite was happy with his loan spell at Derby County this season.

“The pressure is always on and you can feel it,” Barazite told Arsenal.com. “In the Reserves they play for their development but not for the points.

“I think I have learned the physical side of the game – the Championship is really hard work and you have to work for the ball. The main thing is getting those three points, how you get them doesn’t matter.

“At Arsenal you don’t fight against relegation, you fight for titles. It’s a big difference to feel the big, big pressure to stay in a League. I helped the team to stay there so it’s been really good.

“I went to Derby to get that experience for my development I can honestly say I have come back as a more experienced player. Obviously I still have a lot to learn but I am really happy I went and learned all the things I did.”
