Abou Diaby is becoming an increasing influence on the current Arsenal side.

The Frenchman has overcome injury problems and is beginning to establish himself in the centre of the midfield rather than on the left-hand side. His goal against Aston Villa smacked of a player at the top of his game.

On Thursday, Diaby spoke to Arsenal TV Online about his improvement. He talked about:

  • playing in the centre
  • having a long run in the side
  • defending v attacking as a midfielder
  • his goal against Aston Villa
  • the run of seven games unbeaten
  • getting revenge on Hull
