Marouane Chamakh determined to come good for Arsenal

Marouane Chamakh is determined to come good for Arsenal this season.

Chamakh could not maintain his fine early-season form and featured far less after Van Persie returned to full fitness in the New Year but 27-year-old rejects the notion that he might suffer 'second season syndrome' in 2011/12.

"No, I think it'll in fact be easier," Chamakh told

"I understand both the football and the group better, and I now have many friends in this team. So I aim to keep improving and to make a big contribution.

"Your first pre-season is always difficult, you have to accustom yourself to new training and make new friends, but we're all together and everything looks fine."
