Arsenal fullback Cedric Soares appreciates the support of manager Mikel Arteta.

Arteta has talked up Cedric's "fighting spirit" in recent days.

"I am paid to play so of course we want to be part of it, in there every game," Cedric said. "This is what I am training for, this is what I try to do when I have the chance, I feel good, I am in a good moment, I am confident.

"So when I have the opportunity I need to make the best out of it every time and this is how I think.

"When I came here to Arsenal, I had a few injuries and didn't play straight away but since then I have been giving 100 per cent every training session, every game I have played. You know better than me by watching the game, when I have opportunities one thing is for sure, I will give 100 per cent.

"What has changed? I don't know, but I grew up like this, I have to fight for everything I get, it is normal to do my best in every training session so I am ready for the coach.

"When he wants to use me, I am here, I am ready for the team and to support my team-mates as well. The most important thing is we achieve good things in the season."
