Sagna believes his excellent early season form is down to his summer preparation.
"I had a pre-season and last year I didn't have one," he told Arsenal Player. "It was quite difficult because I was still struggling with my ankle and you know when you don't play for one year your body doesn't feel the same.
"I had to work a lot and I manage to play with my team-mates in pre-season and that made a difference."
