Kolasinac on an 'emotional and dramatic' start

Sead Kolasinac is enjoying an impressive start to his Arsenal career.

Last weekend he headed home a Community Shield equaliser against Chelsea, and on Friday night he set up Danny Welbeck’s equaliser in our exhilarating 4-3 win over Leicester.

That was the Bosnia defender’s first taste of the Premier League - so what did he make of it?

on making his Premier League debut…
It was very emotional and very dramatic. I think we started well, went 1-0 up straightaway but then conceded. That was a blow but I think we had the game under control before we conceded the second, which was really annoying. We made it 2-2 before half-time and said then that if we could score soon after the break, we’d win the game. But then we conceded again and had a 10-minute phase after where things didn’t go so well. But then it was a game going at one goal. We made it 3-3 and managed to get the winner soon after. My first Premier League game was very emotional.

on his performance…
It was very emotional. I’m happy that I could help the team with an assist to make it 2-2. I think I had a solid game for my first appearance and I hope it goes on like that.

on differences between Bundesliga and Premier League…
I don’t like to make comparisons but I can say that here the pace of the game is a bit higher. It really goes from end to end and that’s impressive. It takes time to get used to it, and you need time to do it, but that will come from game to game.
