Arsenal boss Wenger excited over returning stars

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is convinced they can end their trophy drought this season after victory in the FA Cup over Burnley yesterday.

Wenger hopes to also have captain Cesc Fabregas back from a serious knee injury in a couple of weeks, while Czech winger Tomas Rosicky could be another in action again soon following a long lay-off.

"We are going into the final sprint. For us it is important to keep all our targets alive," said Wenger, whose team have closed the gap on Aston Villa in the Barclays Premier League down to just three points.

"We know every game demands a big performance because we cannot slip up.

"Slowly, we have all of our players coming back, and that can be decisive."

Wenger added: "People judge always the instant situation. If you look now at the players who are still out - Fabregas, Rosicky and [Emmanuel] Adebayor - they can all contribute offensively a lot."
