The Portuguese winger made his second appearance in this week's defeat to West Ham and Banfield told arsenal.com: "Amaury [Bischoff] is coming into the side and he is finding his way in English football. We have tried to play a diamond so we can get him on the ball and let him do what he is good at.
"He is coming along fine. It is his first 90 minutes in 18 months so you can't ask any more from him. It will be a long road back for him but he has given us everything tonight. Hopefully he will do OK."
