Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger expects new signings Mikel Arteta and Yossi Benayoun to have an immediate impact.

Arteta will be under pressure to bring flair to the Arsenal midfield after replacing fellow Spaniard Cesc Fabregas.

Wenger said: "He's never had the luck to be playing in a consistent way in the Champions League.
