“So hopefully I can do that this time as well. If you’re stepping up a level, then you’ve got to go to that level with your performances as well.”

Meanwhile, Arsenal are hoping to secure a top-four finish in the English Premier League in the current campaign.

The Gunners will be banking on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s scoring ability as he is considered to be one of the best strikers in competition.
