Arshavin hoping for new chance at Arsenal

Andrey Arshavin hopes for more chances at Arsenal.

While the Russian forward starred, and scored, in Wednesday night's 6-1 Capital One Cup win over Coventry City, he has had to bide his time for Premier League action - making just one appearance, as a substitute, in the opening-day draw with Sunderland.

He told the Official Arsenal Matchday Programme: "It's been very difficult for me - my first time in this position, really. Of course I really want to be playing, but I still try to keep in as good a condition as possible and I hope I'll have more chances soon. It was very good to score against Coventry, I enjoyed that."
