The 21-year-old has made eight appearances for the Gunners in 2012-13 and has started twice in the Champions League and once in the Premier League.
"Well, obviously it can be hard, when you have tasted the Premier League, and tasted the Champions League, you want to play every week," he told Arsenal's official matchday programme.
"But that's the same for every player, whether you are 17 or 32. I want to play every week. I'm a bit restricted because there are players ahead of me doing well, so I have to be patient, even though it's hard, and when my time comes it's up to me to show what I can do.
"I know if I perform well I'll play. I think every time I've been selected this season I have done well, so hopefully there will be plenty more chances coming for me."
Arsenal are currently seventh in the Premier League table with 15 points from 10 matches.
