Lukas Podolski has taken to Instagram to show how much he is looking forward to Arsenal’s upcoming fixtures.

The 29-year-old German, whose side host Manchester City on Saturday before their first Champions League group-stage game away to Borussia Dortmund in midweek, posted a picture of himself smiling with his fists clenched towards the camera.

After returning to his club late following Germany’s World Cup victory, Podolski has played only 13 minutes for the Gunners this season.

And he may now find himself further down the pecking order with the deadline day arrival of Danny Welbeck.

But that has not dampened his enthusiasm, not least for Arsenal’s League Cup tie against Southampton on Tuesday September 23.

“Super-exiting (sic) weeks coming up!! Triple action with PL, CL and Cup!” Podolski posted.

“Preparing for the first challenge: Man City!”

Podolski scored eight goals in 20 Premier League appearances last season.
