Serge Gnabry says it was a "dream come true" to score his first goal for Arsenal in the 2-1 win over Swansea City on Saturday.
The German forward put the Gunners ahead with a cool finish after a scintillating move from the visitors before Aaron Ramsey doubled Arsenal's advantage four minutes later.
"It helps when you've got players from the same country speaking the same language"
It was Gnabry's third start in a week he has hailed as the "biggest" of his career so far.
"Scoring my first goal for Arsenal is something amazing," Gnabry told Arsenal Player. "Everybody dreams of scoring for the first team and I've done that today so I'm very happy.
"I think my goal was the moment where we broke through and that gave us a lot of belief and a lot of momentum to think we can win the game."
Gnabry was one of three Germans in the starting line-up on Saturday and the 18-year-old thinks having his compatriots around him has been important during his step up to the first team.
"It helps when you've got players from the same country speaking the same language. Especially for me as a young player, they talk to me a lot and I can learn a lot from them," he said.
"It's good for Arsenal having these good players in the team."
