Mikel Arteta insists Arsenal's late signings will prove their worth.

Arteta has said that his signing – with Per Mertesacker, André Santos and Yossi Benayoun – by Arsène Wenger on transfer deadline day will help to kickstart Arsenal's season.

Speaking to Arsenal's television channel, Arteta said: "I think we've got some experience there from all of them and we have strength in all positions of the team, which is important as we're going to be playing in four competitions. Hopefully they can all add something different to the team and get the team performing better.

"I've got the right experience in England [following six years at Everton] and I can help the team and the young lads here, and I think I've got the best three or four years of my career ahead."
