Yossi Benayoun feels Arsenal fans should be excited by their young players.

The Israeli feels the displays of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Emmanuel Frimpong and Francis Coquelin again showed the club's future is in safe hands.

Benayoun told Arsenal Player: "In the Carling Cup games you see a lot of young players coming in, doing their best.

"A few of them showed that they have a bright future for Arsenal.

"Manchester City didn't play better than us, but in the end we made a mistake from our corner. They have the players with a lot of quality to win the game."
