Carl Jenkinson is delighted to be back in action for Arsenal.

The 20-year-old right back played 45 minutes of the 5-0 win at Norwich after recovering from a back injury that kept him sidelined for three and a half months.

"It is fantastic to be back,” he told Arsenal Player. “It has been really hard coming in every day and doing my rehab stuff, but I am delighted to be back now.

“The injury felt fine; I had no problems with it at all, which is great news because you never know how you are going to react in a game.

“It is a family club at Arsenal, so there are always people who will put an arm around you and try to help you out.

“The medical team have been fantastic, keeping me motivated and making sure I am doing the right things. I have got a lot to thank them for in terms of getting me back to where I am now, so I am very grateful to them.”
