Coquelin’s last appearance came in the Carling Cup win over Bolton and he wants to convince his manager to give him further chances.
“I got back from Lorient where I was playing a lot so I think it's crucial that I can settle in the dressing room now,” he told Arsenal Player.
“I will try to fight for a first team place. I have to keep focused, keep training hard and give 100 per cent every chance I can get. Then I have to grab it and show that I can play.
“It's one of the biggest clubs in the world so to be part of it is just crazy. It's unbelievable.
“Every day I wake up I am happy because I come from a small town and now I am at Arsenal. It's great for me and sometimes I just don't realise it. I just enjoy every day.”
