Arsenal youngster Coquelin not taking first team call for granted

Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin is not taking his first team chance for granted.

The young Frenchman is determined to remain in Wenger's line of sight following his loan spell at Lorient last season and wants to let his time on the pitch do the talking.

"If he uses me that means he has got confidence in me," Coquelin told Arsenal.com. "I have to keep showing I have the quality to play in the first team, and I can show that in training and in the games.

"Obviously I played a lot [at Lorient] so it gave me a lot of experience. I will try and bring that to Arsenal and keep improving."
