"Everybody dreams of scoring for the first team and I've done that today so I'm very happy."

October

It was another memorable month for Serge after he signed a new long-term contract with the Club.

"Arsenal is a great football club and I’m so happy to be here and sign a new contract. For me, now it’s all about working hard and developing my game.

"I'm very pleased for him and for our team that his contribution to us, at his age, is absolutely amazing this season. He came in against Swansea, did a good job and scored the first goal.
