Arsenal boss Wenger: Eduardo just like Fowler

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has likened Eduardo da Silva to Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler.

Eduardo has struck twice in the last two games and Wenger told arsenal.com: "Eduardo has the look of a young Robbie Fowler in his finishing attitude.

"He has short control, a short backlift and quick finishing. It does not always look spectacular but it is always out of reach of the goalkeeper.

"I think these goals could be important for his confidence because he is still adapting to the English game. You could see that because he had a difficult first half but he scored two away at Blackburn and two at Everton so that tells you he is something special."
