September

Danny celebrated his deadline-day move to Emirates Stadium with a brace for England against Switzerland. He then grabbed his first Arsenal goal in their 3-1 victory against Aston Villa after assisting Mesut Ozil’s opener. Speaking after the Villa win, Danny said: “I've not had as many training sessions as I would have liked to but I'm starting to know the other players a lot better. In time I'm sure the understanding will be positive.”
