Nicklas Bendtner has made a solid start to the season. Like Theo Walcott, the Dane has stepped up from 'impact sub' to regular starter and has already netted four times.

We caught up with Nicklas ahead of Sunday's London derby at West Ham. He discussed:

  • his success so far this season
  • how he has improved
  • why he thinks there is more to come
  • the variety of strikers at Arsenal
  • adapting to different strike partners
  • why he doesn't watch much football
  • his assessment of the title contenders
  • why Arsenal have nothing to be scared of
  • the link between consistency and experience
  • the question of leadership
