Arsenal hero Campbell: Late victories will accelerate development

Arsenal hero Sol Campbell feels Arsene Wenger's team will benefit from the manner of their recent victories.

Campbell believes the nature of Arsenal's last-gasp wins against Liverpool and Newcastle will breed self-belief among the squad as they enter the final stages of the season.

"Sometimes it is not about the loss, it is how you lose and that is the same with winning. Winning in the last minute will give the lads confidence," he told

"Robin van Persie is flying and banging in goals left, right and centre. Everyone is starting to gel and realising what it means to play for Arsenal.

"That level of confidence and class is what they should be aiming for all the time. Sure, sometimes you won't reach that level but you have to work out how to grind out a result, or shut the game down. That is a learning curve."
