Diaby excited by Arteta partnership

Abou Diaby has hailed fellow Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta and is looking forward to teaming-up with the Spaniard to help the Gunners end their trophy drought.

The French international has had a nightmare couple of seasons due to injury and hasn’t started a Premier League match for almost a year, meaning he could only look on as his team-mates once again failed to win silverware last term.

However, one of the brightest spots of Arsenal’s season was the form of Arteta, who after to signing from Everton on the final day of the summer transfer window, immediately established himself in the North Londoners’ midfield.

His creativity from the centre of the park was one of the main reasons for captain Robin van Persie’s superb season, which saw him comfortably win the golden boot with 30 goals.

With Diaby now back to full fitness, boss Arsene Wenger has even more options in the engine room and punters betting on sports predict the Gunners will enjoy a much smoother start to the season than they endured last year.

Diaby is looking forward to linking-up with the talented Arteta in order to help their side end their trophy drought.

"Mikel is a great player and he showed last season that he is a very important player in our team." Diaby told news sport reporters."I am looking forward to playing next to him.

"I personally prefer to play with three midfielders because I can go forward and I can also defend. I think it is the position that will suit me the best.

"Of course the midfield is different now because we are all different. The most important thing is to bring out singularities into the team to make it better. If we have a mix of all that, it can be a very good thing," he added.
