Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists Robin van Persie and Marouane Chamakh can play in the same team.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists Robin van Persie and Marouane Chamakh can play in the same team.

Wenger now has both strikers at his disposal and, given his penchant for a 4-3-3 formation, some have questioned whether the Moroccan and the Dutchman can both be accommodated. The Arsenal manager believes they can.

“We can play Chamakh and Van Persie together,” he told arsenal.com. “We can play Chamakh up front and Van Persie behind.

“What is interesting is that we can play all kinds of formations with the two.

“I am pleased because Van Persie is getting stronger every day. He had 70 minutes the other night [against Wigan] and I am confident that if we can get him injury-free in the next three weeks he will be back to his best level."
