Wenger insists Arsenal can score without Van Persie

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists they can score goals without skipper Robin van Persie.

Van Persie has scored 13 times in the Premier League alone this season - half of Arsenal's top-flight tally - but Wenger is confident that others will step up when he is absent.

"At the moment I can't deny that [we rely on him for goals] but I believe that the likes of Gervinho, Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott can score goals and I believe they will," he told Arsenal Player.

"They can score goals, I am completely confident of that. And they will score. At the moment Robin is always on the end of things. I think he will continue but I also think it will change that the other players will score goals as well."
