Arsenal boss Wenger pleased with Vela, Bendtner form

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is happy with his strike-force - particularly with youngsters Nicklas Bendtner and Carlos Vela impressing in preseason.

"We're not as short of strikers as people thought," said Wenger. "Vela is integrating very well into the team and Bendtner was already a force at the end of last season . . . and he will confirm that this year.

"Overall, we are still maybe one player short. But up front we don't need anybody."
