Arsenal fullback Kieran Gibbs is excited to be part of a team with players his own age.

Gibbs graduated from the academy alongside the likes of Wojciech Szczesny, Jack Wilshere and Emmanuel Frimpong and believes advancing with the trio has had its advantages when it comes to first-team matters.

"Wojciech's a similar age, a bit younger, but those players were playing with us for a few years so we all know each other quite well," he told Arsenal Player.

"We know what each other can do, which always helps."
