Simpson wants the chance to be Arsenal's striking saviour

Jay Simpson is confident he can score the goals to help Arsenal fill the void left by the injuries to Robin van Persie and Nicklas Bendtner. The 20-year-old is currently on a season-long loan to QPR but insists he would be more than happy to return to the Gunners.

The young striker scored his eighth goal in 14 matches in the 2-2 draw with Coventry at the weekend and is confident he can transfer that form into the Premier League.

"The goal (against Coventry) won't have done me any harm and I keep in touch with the young Arsenal lads," he told the Daily Mirror.

"I know the club come and watch all my home games and they've got copies of my performances, but it is out of my hands whether I get recalled or not - it's down to the staff there.

"I want to play at the top level, so if this can help my development, then great. But they've picked up a lot of injuries at Arsenal at the moment and I'm confident I can score constantly in the Premier League."
