Matteo Guendouzi has declared himself to be “very happy” with the start he has made at Arsenal, with the “togetherness” of the Gunners squad allowing them to take in a productive run.

Unai Emery saw his reign in north London get off to a testing start with back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea.

He has, however, overseen 16 games without defeat since then, with Arsenal having worked their way into form as individuals and as a collective.

Summer signing Guendouzi has played his part, and just 19 years of age, with the youngster having seen more game time than many expected following his arrival from Lorient.

He is delighted with how things are going, with the talented midfielder hoping to help the Gunners build on their success to this point and challenge for major honours.

Guendouzi said while away on international duty with the France U21 squad: “I’m very happy about my start.

“After that, the most important thing for me is the team, we’re on a good run of 15 or 16 games without a loss, which is something we need to continue on. 

“We’ve drawn the last three games in the league, but we’re a very solid team, and I hope we can do great things.

“There’s a really good togetherness in the group, and that’s why we’ve made a good start to the season. It really is everyone together. There’s no specific groups, and it shows on the pitch.”

Guendouzi is currently involved with the French U21 side for the first time, with his performances at club level having nudged him up the international ladder.

He caught the eye during a recent 2-2 draw with Croatia and is being tipped to enjoy a bright future with club and country.

Both he and Arsenal will be back in domestic action on Sunday when Emery takes his side to the Vitality Stadium to take on Bournemouth.
