[Nketiah was Arsenal under-18’s top scorer last season with 24 goals in 28 appearances but faces tough competition with the likes of Stephy Mavididi, Donyell Malen and Josh Dasilva all competing for a slice of first-team action] I achieved the contract through working hard and trying to keep improving, and as a professional that’s something that I’m determined to keep doing because it takes me a step closer to the first team and I know how high the standards are

I’ve trained quite a few times with the first team now and you see how everything is faster and sharper. Playing against strong defenders like Laurent Koscielny, you have to be concentrated and use good movement to get away from him

I watch our strikers a lot too and I’m working towards being as complete a player as possible. My game is mainly pace, movement and finishing, but I’ve made an effort to hold the ball up better which is something vital for the team and that Olivier Giroud does so well

[Arsenal ace Nketiah reveals instinct key in Southampton opener] I could smell a bit of uncertainty from the goalkeeper – I followed it in, I’ve done that a hundred times so it’s nice one of those leads to a goal. We work a lot on our high press and I think we did it well today, and for me personally I try and give it all to the team

[Although Saints made it tough for Mikel Arteta’s side, victory was critical to get back on track after successive defeats to Manchester City and Brighton] It was a very important three points. I think we’ve been unfortunate in the first game and the last game, the results didn’t go our way. We knew we had to roll our sleeves up and really fight for the three points and hopefully we can build on this and keep pushing forwards. It was difficult, they came out really strong in the second half, and I thought all the boys fought and worked hard. It’s really hard in the heat to keep going but i think we did that. Luckily at the end we were able to wrap it up and add a bit of gloss to the scoreline

We knew we had to roll our sleeves up and really fight for the three points and hopefully we can build on this and keep pushing forwards
