Danny Welbeck is confident the goals will flow for both Arsenal and England if he is given a run of games as an out-and-out attacker.
The 23-year-old begins a new chapter this week after swapping home-town club Manchester United for the Gunners in a £16million move on deadline day.
Welbeck had been with the Old Trafford giants since the age of eight, but dropped down the pecking order and grew increasingly frustrated at a lack of opportunities to lead the line.
It was a position he shone in for England on Monday evening, netting a second-half brace in Switzerland to secure a winning start to their European Championship qualifying campaign - goals he is confident will continue to rack up if he is allowed to play in his favoured role.
"It is well known I prefer to play through the middle so when I get my opportunity I just want to show what I can do," Welbeck said.
The 10 debutants to look out for this weekend
The 10 debutants to look out for this weekend
1/8 Radamel Falcao (Manchester United)
One of four Manchester United players on this list, Falcao's arrival at Manchester United was the biggest surprise of a mad summer. It will be interesting to see where Louis van Gaal decides to play the Colombian hitman - will he start alongside Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie, will he replace one of them, or will he start from the bench?
2/8 Luke Shaw (Manchester United)
Brought in on a massive fee, the English teenager has been roundly criticised for failing to get fit in time for the new season. With Ashley Young struggling as Van Gaal's left wing-back Luke Shaw should come in and immediately be an upgrade in the position. United and England fans will certainly be hoping so.
3/8 Marcos Rojo (Manchester United)
Almost a month after arriving at Manchester United, and four games into the season, Argentine defender Marcos Rojo finally has a passport and should play. Louis van Gaal's team have looked porous at the back and the fiesty defender should add some bite to the back-line.
4/8 Daley Blind (Manchester United)
A Louis van Gaal favourite, Daley Blind is a versatile player capable of slotting in across the defence, at wing-back or in central midfield. Classy and composed on the ball, Blind is a clever player - it'll be interesting to see where the Manchester United boss opts to play the utility man.
5/8 Danny Welbeck (Arsenal)
Danny Welbeck was brilliant for England in Switzerland, scoring two goals and showing all of the energy and enthusiasm that has made him a manager's favourite. Arsenal were desperately in need of cover after the injury to Olivier Giroud and Gunners fans will be hoping the £16m striker hits the ground running.
6/8 Alex Song (West Ham)
Although he never managed to break into the first team in two years at Barcelona, Alex Song is undoubtedly a top quality player. West Ham needed to add goals and flair to their struggling side and Sam Allardyce will be hoping Song can get close to the 11 assists he provided for Arsenal in the 2011-12 season.
7/8 Abel Hernandez (Hull City)
Steve Bruce has spent the majority of the money he received for the sale of Shane Long on the 24-year-old Hernandez. The Uruguayan had an excellent season in Serie A last year scoring 14 goals for Palermo, but is a bit of a wildcard. The pacey striker will look to develop the same kind of partnership Long enjoyed with Nikica Jelavic last season
8/8 Ricky Alvarez (Sunderland)
Alvarez's signature is a coup for Gus Poyet and Sunderland. The tall Argentina midfielder oozes class and was impressive for Inter Milan last season with four goals and eight assists, before being selected for the World Cup. Sunderland struggled for goals last season and will be hoping Alvarez can provide a spark for their strikers.
"Once I get into the box and get the opportunities I have got faith in my ability.
"Before I wasn't getting into the box because I wasn't playing too much as a striker and I had to worry about my defensive work.
"Listen, anyone can say what they want to say but I just know once I get the opportunity and a run of games up front I will do my best.
"That's definitely what I need. It is good for any footballer to get a run of games.
"You become more confident and play much more at ease and to get a run of games would be absolutely perfect.
"That is my first 90 minutes this season so it is just the start of things and really looking forward to it."
Welbeck says he has not had a decent run of games since Christmas last year, suggesting Monday's display in Basle could be just a taster of what is in store for Arsenal and England.
The forward impressed up top alongside captain Wayne Rooney, with his goals helping the Three Lions to a much-needed 2-0 win after the World Cup debacle.
"It was important," Welbeck said. "It was good for me to get the two goals but it was more important for the whole team to get the win and off to a flying start and to get three points from scratch and that was the most pleasing thing.
"I think what we have worked this week in training a lot of it showed and that is very pleasing because it showed your hard work is not going to waste and that is what we have got - players in midfield who can break on beyond the attackers and we know if they get behind us we are going to sit in for them.
"We are fighting for each other as a team and that is most important."
