Bendtner confident establishing himself at Arsenal

Nicklas Bendtner says he's happy at Arsenal and confident of establishing himself in Arsene Wenger's first team.

"All through the club, including all the young players, everyone knows what it's all about and the way to play football," said Bendtner, back at Emirates Stadium after spending a season on loan with Birmingham.

"We play passing football all the time in training. We are all used to it and can all do it and we showed that again.

"At the moment the confidence is really really high.

"The win over Newcastle was just another showing of what the club is going through at the moment.

"We are doing everything really well. Everyone is really happy and wants to play for the club."

The young striker, though, accepts he will have to be patient, with Adebayor - who scored a hat-trick last weekend - set to return for the trip to West Ham on Saturday as Arsenal look to maintain their place at the top of the Barclays Premier League.

Bendtner said: "We have a strong squad at the moment. Adebayor has done really well against Derby.

"I am going to hope for my chance.

"Anything can happen. There will be injuries as well.

"If I am involved, great. If not, I will keep working hard."
