"The highlight so far of my career... It was the best moment"

Serge Gnabry says his first goal in the Premier League is the highlight of his career so far.

The 18-year-old made his full league debut in the Gunners 3-1 win over Stoke City in September and less than a week later, scored his first league goal for the club in the 2-1 win away at Swansea.

The attacker told Arsenal Player:
"[Scoring my first league goal] was the highlight so far of my career. It was the best moment. I've been waiting for that for ages and it was just an amazing feeling. 
"I was just happy I could help the team to a win by scoring my first goal."
The teenager has been involved in 26 of Arsene Wenger's 32 league squads so far this season, starting in five games, coming on as a substitute in four more and has been unused substitute 18 times.

The breakthrough campaign has also seen the German-born youngster tipped to see him included in his country's world cup squad.

Gnabry added:
"I am very happy with how this season has gone. I am a very young player, so to be alongside all these top players, in a squad with massive potential, has been really good. I have been involved in most of the games so I am very happy. 
"[My life] has changed a lot. Obviously you get more attention from fans and get recognised more often. Also, as a player you feel confident when you are in and around a team of top players. I'm just trying to get to the next level now. 
"It makes you a better person. I have grown up a lot since I came from the youth team, and it is a good experience to be playing, training and learning from all the top players here."
