Arsenal starlet Emmanuel Frimpong is hoping to get as many minutes under his belt as possible this season.
The 19-year-old has been used as a substitute by Arsene Wenger in the Gunners' opening two games of the season.
He figured in both the goalless draw at Newcastle and the 1-0 victory over Udinese in the UEFA Champions League play-offs.
There is every chance he could be named from the start this weekend, as Arsenal prepare to welcome Liverpool to the Emirates.
With Alex Song set to start a three-match ban and Jack Wilshere still nursing an ankle knock, Frimpong could get the opportunity to prove his worth from the off.
He told the club's official website: "I just want to be involved as much as possible.
"It is going to be hard because there are so many players at Arsenal but hopefully I can play as many games as I can.
"It is difficult because I am at a very big club and I have got to be patient."
Another man hoping to make his mark this season is Ryo Miyaichi, with the Japanese youngster having been granted a work permit.
He believes he is ready to face the challenge of the Premier League, with a loan spell at Feyenoord last season helping him to find his feet in European football.
Miyaichi said: "It was my first year as a professional and, even though it was only half of a season, it was a great experience.
"I was lucky to be there and play, I was surrounded by both nice fans and staff and I am grateful to all of them.
"When I was loaned out to Feyenoord, I felt some kind of connection."
