• Cross: Title belief grows

Gnabry, 18, scored his first goal for the club during the 2-1 Premier League victory at Swansea which cemented the Gunners’ position at the top of the table.

After forging a reputation for spotting talented young footballers Wenger is hopeful that he has unearthed another gem.

"He is surprising," Wenger said. "He has the talent, but he has the personality on the pitch as well.

"He doesn't look timid, he looks to play with belief and, of course, talent. Unfortunately he is another player for Germany, he's not English.

"He was one-year-old when I came to Arsenal, I can't believe it. Now I have some players in my squad who were not born when I arrived at Arsenal.

"The two players who scored (Gnabry and Aaron Ramsey) have a combined age of 40."
