Reiss Nelson found the net for the sixth time this season as we won 2-0 against Tottenham at London Colney on Friday afternoon.
We're now up to third in the Premier League 2 table - and this is what Reiss had to say to Arsenal Player after the final whistle:
on another game and another goal...I’m really happy that I scored another goal. I think this season for me, goals are a big target and that’s what the coach is saying - to work on my goals. So to get another goal, I’m really happy.
on how he is adapting to the step up to under-23 football...Adapting to life at under-23s level is good for me, because I’m one of the youngest in the squad. But they’ve helped me a lot and I’m just getting more and more confident, so I think that’s where the goals are coming from. I’m happy with that.
on playing in various positions and where he feels most comfortable...For me, I do like left wing and number 10 as well. But, if the gaffer puts me there I’m just going to have to play there. I’ll just do that for the team.
on moving up to third in the table...I didn’t know that at the start, but I’ll give the news to the lads as well. Third is a big opportunity for us and [we need] to push again in the next game as well.
on two convincing wins over Tottenham and Chelsea in the past eight days...For me, Tottenham is a big, big plus as well. Getting a win over Tottenham is the best thing. So I’m happy for that.
