Yaya Sanogo has promised Arsenal fans that the goals will come when he eventually nets his first league strike for the north Londoners.

The 21-year-old is yet to find the net in a competitive fixture for Arsene Wenger’s side, despite having racked up 17 appearances since his transfer from Auxerre last summer.

The fans expect me to score more, but once the first one goes in they’ll come

However, the France Under-21 international is adamant that his first goal for the Gunners will open the floodgates for plenty more.

“Football is football, but it takes time to adapt,” Sanogo told L’Equipe.

“When you come out of Ligue 2 and you end up in a duel with [Manchester City’s Vincent] Kompany, it is not an easy task.

“On all aspects [of my game] I’ve evolved. When you train with great players every day, you progress. When you play big teams, it helps gain experience.

“The fans expect me to score more, but once the first one goes in they’ll come.

“At 21, it’s not easy to play striker at Arsenal. You have to fight every day to prove your worth. But Wenger just pushes me to continue my work will eventually pay off.”
