Wenger is excited by the form of his two young midfielders.
He told arsenal.com: "Walcott put in a great performance. I'm happy with both sides of his game - he defended very well and [set up] two goals. His game has improved tremendously because he's an intelligent player. When you're intelligent, you always improve.
"I have always believed in Aaron and I think he has shown again what a tremendous engine and what desire he has. His vision has improved and his tactical aspect has improved a lot. He's growing into a very strong player."
