Kieran Gibbs believes that his strong early-season form at Arsenal is down to Arsene Wenger allowing the full-back to have the freedom to press high up the pitch.

Arsenal full-back Kieran Gibbs has revealed that he is relishing the attacking freedom provided by Arsene Wenger.

Gibbs has been a constant feature in advanced positions for the Gunners, starting all six of Arsenal's Premier League games so far this season.

The England international believes that Wenger is encouraging his team to play the game the right way.

He told the club's official website: "The boss is always telling me, ever since pre-season, to play high and wide and stretch the team, to let the midfielders have more room.

"It's part of my game as well and I feel I play the game how I think it should be played. That's probably where that comes from.

I've kept fit so far this season which has been important for me, especially over the last couple of years where I struggled to stay fit.

"I always said if I can get a good run of games under my belt, I can always get stronger and hopefully be more consistent, which is what I'm doing at the minute."

Gibbs turned 23 last week and has already amassed 78 first-team appearances at the Emirates.
