Wenger excited by Gunners

Arsene Wenger is confident that the players he currently has at his disposal are ready to achieve "something special" following Arsenal's 4-1 Champions League win over AZ Alkmaar.

Skipper Cesc Fabregas netted twice, with Samir Nasri and Abou Diaby also getting on the scoresheet as the Gunners moved to within one point of qualifying for the last 16 with a comprehensive Group H victory over the Dutch champions.

Wenger's policy of preferring to nurture young talent rather than buy established names was again questioned during the summer, but the Frenchman believes that patience with his current crop is beginning to bear fruit.

"Let's keep this attitude and spirit and we can deliver something special," declared Wenger.

"I've said that for a long time and we want to show that. I just want to go from strength to strength.

"Our policy is to produce our own and add players of special quality and Andriy Arshavin and Thomas Vermaelen are good examples of that.

"I am not scared to spend money but what we want is to buy the players who have the needed quality to strengthen the team.

"It was a brilliant performance because we dominated our subjects technically, tactically and overall were never under threat.

"Overall I'm very happy."
