The Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs has suggested that he is working to his maximum limit to help the team recover from the poor run of form, which they have been experiencing for the last few months. Arsenal made a good start to the Premier league season and were expected to be one of the contenders for the title finally this season.

However, a very bad run of form in recent months have meant that they have fallen more than 15 points behind leaders Manchester United. Kieran Gibbs, who has been a first-team regular for the club since the departure of Clichy, has said that he has been working extremely hard in order to help the team in every way possible.

The defender has suffered a number of niggling injuries so far this campaign, which have limited to him making only 12 appearances in all the competitions. Yet, he believes that he is working extremely hard in order to overcome the injury problems and make starts on a regular basis. Gibbs has stressed the importance of working hard as a team when not in possession of the ball, which is equally important as what a team does when in possession of the ball. Gibbs was absent from the squad that played against Olympiacos, but is expected to return against West Brom.

“It’s not just about what we do when we got the ball, it’s about what we do even more so when we haven’t got the ball. You just have to play the game how you think it needs to be played and if you give 100%, we know we’ve got the quality to get results. We should be doing that. I always knew that if I pick up a run of games, I can be positive for the team and have a big influence,” said Kieran Gibbs.
