Joe Willock says he wants to keep adding goals to his game after netting his third of the season to help Arsenal to an easy 4-0 win against Standard Liege.
The 20-year-old midfielder showed a poacher’s instinct to convert on 22 minutes, converting with his right-foot after a Reiss Nelson shot was deflected into his path.
An early brace from Gabriel Martinelli and a second half strike from Dani Ceballos ensured it was a happy night for the Gunners who now top Europa League Group F with a three point cushion.
After the game, Willock admitted he was excited by the regular football coming his way and made clear there’s more to come.
He told BT Sport: “That’s one of my targets, to add goals into my game, so I am happy to have done that, but also happy to get the win and happy for the clean sheet.
“The manager got into us [at half time] to keep going even if it’s 3-0 or 4-0 and we knew we had targets, we had to keep pressing and keep trying to win the ball back even when we’ve scored a lot of goals.
“That’s what he drills into us and that’s what we try to do.”
He added: “It’s very exciting because we know we have a manager that wants to play youngsters, he wants to give us chances. So we have to take every opportunity that comes and try to work hard and make a difference.”
