Lukas Podolski says he is finding his feet at Arsenal after acclimatising to English football's staple diet of two games per week.

The Germany international has seven goals for his new club and none better than the one that secured a 2-0 win over Montpellier on Wednesday night - a thunderous left-foot volley from just inside the box.

Podolski has scored in each of his last three appearances and feels more and more comfortable in his new surroundings.

"Sometimes it is not easy when you come from another country and another league, and I play every three days so this is new for me," he told Arsenal Player.

"But I think I have played very well in the last few matches and I am looking forward to scoring a lot more goals and making some success for the team and for the Club.

"[The last week] means a lot, we have seven points from the three matches we played at home. We were unlucky with the game against Fulham because we went in front by two goals but we won the derby against Tottenham and an important Champions League game tonight."

Arsenal have now reached the last 16 of the Champions League for 13 consecutive years - a run bettered only by Real Madrid.

"Yes, it's a great record," said Podolski. "This is my first season and I hope the next years are also like this.

"Now we have this season, we look forward to the last [Group B] match against Olympiacos, we want to win that match, then we will look for the next round."
