Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo is delighted with his first team breakthrough this week.
â€śI didnâ€™t know I was going to start against Liverpool until the boss announced the team before the game,â€ť he told the official Arsenal matchday programme. â€śIt was my first start in a competitive game since I joined and I was delighted.
â€śI felt really good physically and gave everything I had. Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger are very tough to play against, really big and strong, so it was a good test for me.
â€śBut I am a big boy too, and it was just a case of not letting them intimidate me. I didnâ€™t let them bully me - I had to be there in the physical battle. The last 30 minutes were difficult physically but overall I was happy, especially as we won.â€ť
