Arsenal boss Wenger: Let's not compare Eduardo with Bergkamp, Cruyff just now

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is eager to play down expectations for Eduardo after his outrageous goal against Burnley on Sunday.

Eduardo's spectacular volley was likened to famous strikes by the likes of Johann Cruyff and Dennis Bergkamp. However, the manager thinks that his 12-month lay-off makes it too early in his Arsenal career for comparisons.

"In fairness, we have not seen enough of him to really judge who he will be," Wenger said.

"Last year it took him a few months to get in there. Then he scored goals but got quickly injured. He looks more mature than when he arrived in his game."
