Arsenal young gun Eisfeld progressing well

Thomas Eisfeld feels his development is progressing well since he joined Arsenal.

The 19-year old German midfielder joined the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund in January and although he has not yet appeared for the first team, he believes he is learning a lot with the reserves.

"I've always scored a lot of goals and made a lot of assists," Eisfeld told the Official Arsenal Magazine.

"I think that is important in my position to be able to do that.

"My favourite position is the No 10 role, so attacking midfield. I don't mind the wings either. But I don't think playing as a central striker is really my position because I'm not the strongest physically.

"Since I've been at Arsenal I've learnt how to play the ball quicker and to pass and move with more effectiveness. I have become stronger too.

"Pre-season was really nice and gave me real a confidence boost. I was confident going into it because I know what I am capable of, but I certainly didn't expect to score two goals. I'm really happy with how it went."
