Chuba Akpom: Playing in an Arsenal top is...

Chuba Akpom expressed his delight at making his first start of the season for Arsenal.

Akpom was handed his first start of 2016/17 in Arsenal's 4-0 triumph over Nottingham Forest in the EFL third-round clash on Tuesday night and the youngster performed fairly well in a wide position.

The 20-year-old was left delighted after finally being handed a chance to start and following the game, he has expressed a desire to earn more minutes on the pitch for the Gunners during the coming weeks.

Akpom said: "Hopefully more games and more minutes.

"The feeling of just going out there with an Arsenal top on and just playing is the best feeling and that's the feeling that I want to have.

"I've just got to keep working hard in training and keep working hard to just get out there and get as many minutes as I can."
