Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was delighted to see Samir Nasri get on the scoresheet in their rout of AZ Alkmaar.

The Gunners beat their Champions League opponents 4-1 at Emirates stadium last night.

On Nasri, Wenger told arsenal.com: "He is nearly there. He has shown that today, especially in the first half. In the second half I feel he dipped a little bit. For a guy who has been out a long time he is in reasonable shape."

Wenger also says Eduardo is close to full fitness.

He added: "Eduardo is a super player. I didn't start him tonight because he played two games against Liverpool and Tottenham so I wanted to give him a breather. But Eduardo is a fantastic striker."
