Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson says they'll be throwing in more crosses this season.

With 6ft 4ins striker Olivier Giroud poised to lead the attack once Robin van Persie eventually leaves The Emirates, it seems manager Arsene Wenger is considering his tactical options already.

Jenkinson told the Daily Star Sunday: “The manager knows crossing is one of my strengths and he has asked me to get as many balls into the box as I can.

“But, at the same time, he has told me not to cross for the sake of it. It is an asset of my game and one I like to use.

“We like to keep the ball moving and create goals in different ways – but crossing is a strength that I like to use when I can.”
