Flamini returned to the Gunners after coming off contract at AC Milan.
He told arsenal.com: "In the Premier League, from the first minute to the last minute, there is a very high intensity. It's very physical. You don't have an easy part of the game, like you could find in Italy. The Premier League is 100 per cent, from the first minute until the end. That's the main difference for me."
