The French teenager moved to the Gunners in a £7m deal from Ligue 2 side Lorient in the 2018 summer transfer window after the tenacious midfielder’s impressive performances.
Guendouzi arrived at Arsenal with limited experience having made just 30 appearances in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 between 2016 and 2018.
However, Unai Emery hasn’t been afraid to rely upon Guendouzi despite his young age, starting the French teenager in Arsenal’s 2-0 loss to defending champions Manchester City.
Guendouzi made a further eight appearances in the Premier League before November’s international break to prove an important member of Emery’s squad despite his fledgling professional career.
The 19-year-old opened his Arsenal account in a 3-0 victory over Qarabag in the Europa League group stage, which was also his first professional goal having failed to find the net during three seasons at Lorient.
Discussing the early months of his Gunners career, Guendouzi spoke of his delight at his positive start to life under Spanish head coach Emery.
“I’m very happy about my start,” Guendouzi is quoted as saying by the Daily Star.
“After that, the most important 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 was one of five new arrivals at the north London side in the summer transfer window following Emery’s appointment as Arsene Wenger’s successor.
The Gunners bought Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno, Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Juventus full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner and Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira.
