Eduardo de Silva is determined to be part of another Arsenal goal glut against Slavia Prague in the UEFA Champions League.
The Gunners hammered Slavia 7-0 at Emirates Stadium a fortnight ago and play the return game in the Czech capital on Wednesday.
Summer signing Eduardo has made just one appearance in the group phase to date, scoring in the 3-0 victory over Sevilla as a substitute.
But the Croatia international has called on Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to give him a chance against Slavia as the Premier League leaders aim to book a place in the knockout stage.
"The match in London was just incredible," said Eduardo in the News of the World.
"Arsenal provided a hurricane of goals, so much so that 7-0 left us short.
"It was the best match from an attacking point of view I have ever seen, so I really want to be in the starting line-up this time to profit from the number of chances I think we will create.
"Another victory will nearly secure first place in the group.
"Slavia will want revenge and we must play intelligently and avoid the kicks because I believe that the Czechs will be furious about what happened to them at the Emirates."
