Tomas Rosicky is happy with his form this season - but he wants to get back among the goals.

A minor injury kept the Czech international out of Wednesday night's Champions League win over his former club Borussia Dortmund but the 31-year-old has already played a significant role in Arsenal's march to the last 16 after coming off the bench to great effect in the second leg of the play-off at Udinese.

Rosicky is feeling good - especially after his country qualified for Euro 2012 earlier this month - and now he wants to add an end-product to his creative play.

“Performance-wise I’d say things are going fairly well,” Rosicky told the Official Matchday Programme.

“I’d definitely like to be more productive - it’s been a while since I scored a goal, for example, so I have to look at that and hopefully I’ll be back on target soon.

"I think everybody [gets a lift if they do well at international level]," he added.

“Every positive experience you have in your private life, your international football, or anything else for that matter, has benefits in your game. If you’re happy then it’ll be obvious.

"From my point of view I have two good games for the Czech Republic behind me and hopefully that can continue in my form here at Arsenal.”
