Gibbs enjoying injury-free run

Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs believes his impressive form can be attributed to finally putting his injury problems behind him.

Gibbs has been an ever-present for Arsenal in the English Premier League this season and has caught the eye with some rampaging forward play as well solid defensive play, finally cementing his place as first-choice left-back.

“I feel my performances have been positive this season,” the 23-year-old told the club’s website.

“I’ve kept fit which has been important for me – especially over the last couple of years where I struggled to stay fit.

“I always said if I can get a good run of games under my belt, I can always get stronger and hopefully be more consistent – which is what I’m doing at the minute.

“I’m happy to be fit and I’m happy to be playing.”

A feature of Gibbs’ play this season has been his ability to contribute in the attacking third wide on the left.

It was a tactic that particularly came to fruition in Arsenal’s 6-1 win over Southampton, as the newly promoted side were forced into two own goals from Gibbs’ crosses.

“The boss (Arsene Wenger) is always telling me, ever since pre-season, to play high and wide and stretch the team, to let the midfielders have more room,” he said.

“It’s part of my game as well and I feel I play the game how I think it should be played. That’s probably where that comes from.”
