Sanchez Watt says self-belief is behind his excellent start to the season with Arsenal Reserves.

The 20-year-old is on a prolific run for Neil Banfield’s team, failing to score in just one of his eight appearances this term after adding another in the win over Norwich on Tuesday.

Watt recently signed a new deal with the Club and believes his current form can take his Arsenal career to the next level.

“It's a bit more about confidence and the players I'm playing with at the moment,” Watt told “We're all pushing each other and obviously I'm now getting chances that I'm taking.

“I have good partnerships with a lot of players in the team at the moment. We all want to work for each other, and they're giving me great balls right now. I just have to finish them.

“The next step for me is trying to push myself more into the boss' mind so I can either get on the bench or play in any way I can,” he added. “Even going out on loan, playing every game. I just have to work hard for my chance.

“I'll do whatever is best. Obviously I have already spoken to the boss and he knows what's best for my career. Football is what I love to play and that is what I want to do.”
