When the England international joined the North London side he was playing alongside legends of the club such as Robert Pires, Thierry Henry, and Dennis Bergkamp. Despite the presence of these club heroes, the forward still thinks that the current crop are better. This comes in the aftermath of their victory over Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday…

Players such as Aaron Ramsey, Danny Welbeck, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were name-checked by the 25-year-old as the reasons for their potent attacking play. None of that group have been rated alongside the legends, but there is still time for them to make it to the top as none are over the age of 25 as of yet.

“Danny [Welbeck] is a workaholic – he runs around and really works for the team,” he told the club’s official website. “There are so many options and Alex [Oxlade-Chamberlain] is also doing very well.”

He continued, “Obviously there is me as well coming back, and then you have the likes of Aaron [Ramsey] and Jack [Wilshere] in midfield. The list goes on, that’s how good we are going forward. It is a headache for the manager when you have that many great attacking options.

“When I came, it was Pires and Ljungberg, Bergkamp, Thierry and [Jose Antonio] Reyes – that’s some attacking force as well. I think this squad probably does beat it, but we need to prove it first. [When] we go and achieve a little bit more than winning the FA Cup, then I think we can stand up and say this is the best attacking line up we’ve ever had.”

The Gunners next play Brighton in the FA Cup fourth round, and will be hoping for a victory so that they can continue their effort to defend the trophy they won last season.
