Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is delighted with the progress of Carl Jenkinson.

Wenger admitted the youngster, signed from Charlton in the summer of 2011 for just £1m, had surprised even him with his progress.

Wenger said: “What is interesting with Carl is that in every game he brings so much going forward and you discover aspects of his game that you didn’t see before.

“I feel at the start he was just thinking, ‘I will just defend well, do my job’ and he is now a bit more relaxed and you see something else in him.”
