Cape Town - Nacho Monreal says his recent performances are a result of soaring confidence.

The defender has started every game of Arsenal’s eight-match winning run, memorably scoring against Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-final.

Monreal says he has adjusted to life in England and feels “more British now”.

“I feel really good living in London, I’m very happy living here and playing for Arsenal,” Monreal told Arsenal Player.

“I think I’m more British now. It’s always difficult, coming to London. It’s another country, another language, different football.

“It’s never easy, the first months are the worst because the life is not easy. You have to find a house, you have to meet other players, learn English as quick as possible, it’s never easy.

“Really we can only do one thing and that is to train hard and well, so the boss can see that you are training well and that you want to play. You can do nothing more than that.

“I think that I’m playing really well because I’m playing a lot of games. I feel fit and my confidence is very high.

“Every player who plays for Arsenal is here because they are a great player not just good players. You need minutes on the pitch, that is the best way to play well.”
