Sanchez Watt is hoping his goal against West Brom will ensure he remains part of Arsenal's Carling Cup team this season.
Teenage striker Watt marked his first-team debut for the Gunners by scoring the opening goal in Tuesday night's 2-0 win in the third round of the competition.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger regularly uses the Carling Cup as a means to blood his young players and Sanchez aims to stay in his manager's thoughts.
"This is one of the times when you have to push on," said Watt.
"This is where the youngsters have the chance to show what they can do and you have to take the chance.
"There are many strikers here, but as long as I show what I can do, that's the best you can do and there is nothing to worry about.
"As long as you keep doing well and give the manager no choice, he has to play you.
"I am getting used to it and going with the flow."
Watt, who was on the bench for last week's UEFA Champions League tie with Standard Liege, also revealed he picked former captain Thierry Henry's brains before the Frenchman left for Barcelona.
He added: "I was here when Thierry was here, and although I did not get to play with him, I still asked him questions off the pitch when he was free about how it was and stuff like that.
"Not many people get the chance to ask players like that, so I just took it as a good chance.
"I was not nervous because when we were growing up, our manager told us you can ask them questions.
"Thierry said: 'Be calm in front of goal and when the ball is moving, you don't have to keep making long runs. Make it short and sharp and just take it from there'.
"There are a lot of players here I have watched like Henry, [Emmanuel] Adebayor, Van Persie, Arshavin - there are many players here I look up to and I even ask questions, they tell me positioning and other things to help me keep learning."
