Nicklas Bendtner is backing Arsenal's youngsters to keep the club top of the table.

The 19-year-old Denmark striker will turn down any possibilities of moving on loan next month as he feels the younger players at the club can have a big say in winning the league.

"I'm staying here no matter what happens," he said. "Moving now or going on loan would not be what I want.

"It is the squad that wins all the games. You need to have a strong squad. If someone is tired later in the season it is important that you have someone who can come in and take over."
