Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes Cesc Fabregas and his young teammates have matured this season.

"They are all more mature now," said Wenger. "Cesc is committed and you always like your players to have a winning attitude.

"Sometimes it can go a little bit over the top, but Cesc has behaved remarkably well this season - I cannot remember one incident.

"There was maybe a stage, for about six months, where he went a bit the wrong way - but he corrected that very well, without any special management from me.

"If I feel that the players aren't managing to do it themselves then I will help them to do it. But in his case, there was no need. He apologised and from then on there have been no problems with him.

"He is so intelligent that he realised that is not the way he wanted to go."
