Carl Jenkinson might not be blessed with all the football talent in the world, but every time I`ve seen him played he`s offer no more, or less than 100% effort each time he`s pulled on the famous red and white shirt of The Arsenal.

Jenks was part of the side that got battered at Old Trafford not so long ago, and despite being one of the only players not to hide for the entire match, he took a bit of a hammering from the fans. Being a young player with only a tiny bit of footballing experience, this game could have ruined him, however it seems to have had the opposite effect, the young right back has gotten better every time he`s played ever since.

Much like the rest of the team, one or two results aside.

Carl was also part of the team that gave Chelsea a good stuffing at Stamford Bridge, and Jenkinson believes the fabulous result will kick start a run of decent away results after winning very few away matches since the Carling Cup final waaaaay back in February.

‘The Chelsea win was a big pick-up for us,’ he said on the official club website.

‘It was nice because we know what we are capable of and I think that result showed everyone else what we are capable of. Not many teams have gone to Stamford Bridge and scored five goals and after that win I think our away form will go from strength to strength.

‘Norwich are doing well and from what I’ve seen their home form has been good as well. They are obviously a good side so no one will be going there thinking it will be anything other than a difficult game.

“We’ve got to make sure we are fully focused because it’s going to be a battle. We won’t be taking anything for granted but hopefully we can go there and get a good result.’
