Tomas Rosicky says a regular run in the side is the secret to his outstanding recent form.

The Czech international has been one of Arsenal's stand-out performers since the turn of the year and was influential again as Arsène Wenger's side came from behind to beat Newcastle on Monday.

Rosicky signed a new contract ahead of that match and he was delighted to pledge his future to the Club.

“I am very happy,” he told Arsenal Player. “I wanted to continue here and I am enjoying it very much so I am glad that I am staying.

“I am trying my best and enjoying the run of games that I am playing. Sometimes in the past it has been difficult when you play once in two weeks, sometimes it is not easy.

“You can see now that I have the rhythm of the games and that is what I needed. As you can see I think I am contributing well and I want to continue like that.

“My fitness is obviously a big thing too; the first step is obviously to play football. I have got that right now, I had the chance and I took it. Obviously I would like to stay in the team and playing like I am right now.”
