Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner insists he can play with the Gunners' man-of-the-moment Marouane Chamakh.

Bendtner says he is able to slot into boss Arsene Wenger's attack formation which currently has Moroccan Chamakh as its focal point.

He said: "I can play in any of the three front positions so I'm well placed to cope however the boss would like to use me.

"I like Marouane. As a team-mate he's been really great. I hadn't trained with him until very recently but he seems like a good guy, a good football player and - on what I've seen so far I think he has done really well.

"As well as scoring goals he works hard when he doesn't have the ball which I like.

"All the new players that have come in have done really well, but obviously as he's the striker its easiest for me to speak about him and I'm impressed."
