Arsene Wenger once again urged cautious optimism after watching his Arsenal youngsters book their place in the last 16 of the Carling Cup with a 2-0 win over Newcastle at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners boss - whose side sit proudly at the top of the Barclays Premier League - opted for youth, and was rewarded with a quality performance as his team chalked up a seventh straight win in all competitions.

However, Wenger again stressed the need for everyone to keep grounded - despite a superb start to the new campaign, saying: "With football, I am a bit cautious. It is just the beginning of the season. We have to show we are consistent throughout the whole season."
