Arsenal boss Wenger has confidence in Vela, Chamakh

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists they can handle the absences of injured pair Nicklas Bendtner and Carlos Vela.

The Frenchman has declared his confidence in the strikers he does have available.

"I'm happy with the options," Wenger told arsenal.com. "We still have Carlos Vela coming back now in a good shape along with Chamakh and Arshavin."

However, Wenger is expecting his midfield players to chip in with their share of goals. "We have offensive players like Fabregas, Rosicky and Nasri so we have plenty of players who can score goals," said Wenger. "They are all creative players in midfield."
