Arsene Wenger heaped praise on Lukas Podolski after the German scored once and provided three assists in Arsenal’s 5-1 demolition of West Ham.

Podolski hit a stunning equaliser in the first half and Wenger was delighted with how he drove Arsneal forward after the break.

“He had an outstanding game tonight,” he said. “He scored a very important goal. He has an unbelievable shot because the keeper had no chance. After he gave of course two great balls as well.

“Certainly today it was his most efficient game because I felt he took responsibility at the moment when we needed him.

“With a player of his experience you expect him to do that.

“I have plenty of candidates [to play through the centre] but I believe still this is his best position [on the left].”
