Drought: Rosicky is struggling in front of goal

Tomas Rosicky is determined to rediscover his scoring touch to nail down a regular starting role at Arsenal.

The 30-year-old Czech playmaker last found the target in a 4-2 win over Bolton in January and has been in and out of the side for much of this season.

He said: 'I would like to play more. I could imagine playing more even though I have been involved in a lot of fixtures. At the moment I am in the starting XI, then I come on as a substitute and then again in the starting line-up.

'I want to play in the big games - Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City - because in those games I have only come on as a sub.

'I must be realistic because the players I replace score goals. I have not scored in four months, so I can't be that surprised.

'At the moment I am half-satisfied. My performances are okay and I am healthy, but the goals worry me. I have a bad record.'

The Gunners are just two pints behind leaders Chelsea in the Barclays Premier League and Rosicky added: 'I think we have not done badly at all. It is obvious that the league is very tight, the tightest it has been in my five years at Arsenal. Every single game is extremely difficult. We wanted to be near the top, that is always our aim.'
