Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is convinced his current team can develop into the best he's had in his 12 years at the club.

The Gunners class of 2003-04 became the first team since Preston in 1888-89 to go a whole season without suffering a defeat in the league with a side which boasted the talents of Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires and Sol Campbell.

And Wenger is confident the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Theo Walcott and Samir Nasri have the same ability and can go on to win silverware at home and in Europe.

He said: "The invincibles were an extraordinary team and I believe we are very close - I believe we have the quality to achieve that.

"What comes out of the invincibles is that the consistency they showed in their attitude and that is what we have to cope with and I believe we can take that from them.

"They have been consistent with their attitude and over the long-term there is that consistency there.

"I believe this team can achieve great things and we should not set limitations on that because they will go as far as they want to go.

"What energises me is boys who want to do something with their life and have a fantastic attitude and great desire. My job is to guide people who want to be successful and this bunch of players want to be successful.

"I had always a strong belief we can achieve it with the players I have and I am confident I will be proved right so that is why I want to do that."
