Cesc believes in Arsenal potential

Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas is confident the current team are on the verge of great things.

Despite losing Gilberto Silva, Mathieu Flamini and Alexander Hleb as fellow midfielders, Fabregas is confident Arsenal are on the verge of success and is not concerned by the only summer arrivals being Samir Nasri and Aaron Ramsey.

"We sign what we need," he told FourFourTwo magazine. "Sometimes teams pay a fortune for a player with experience, who knows how to win, who at key moments can win you a game - and that's important.

"But at Arsenal there's a different policy and we have to respect that.

"The day we win something with these players, with this policy, this atmosphere and style, there will be a big change - almost a revelation.

"I speak to people in the game a lot and they tell me about Ajax who in the 1970s won the European Cup with an extremely young team and changed the face of the game.

"People tell me that we are on course to do that, but we need that stepping stone of winning something, of knowing how to win."
