Arsene Wenger praises the different types of attacking players at his disposal and admits that variety will be key to success this season.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that he will need to rotate his options in forward positions to keep his players happy.

The Gunners have shared the goals around this season, with Gervinho, Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Andrey Arshavin all on target.

Wenger believes that having variety in attack is imperative over the course of a long campaign.

He told the club's official website: "Up front affects the whole team, whether you have a more mobile player or a more physical player affects the passing of the team.

"We can be efficient with both styles, I even think we can combine the two which I try to do in some games. It is good, you cannot play a season with one striker.

"We have many strikers. Walcott can play through the middle as well, so we have good options that we will try through the season. The season is very long and we are trying to test all the solutions."

After failing to score in their opening two matches, Arsenal have 17 goals in their last five games in three different competitions.
