Eduardo da Silva has all the ingredients to be a big hit in the Premier League, according to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

Wenger has stressed the £7million signing from Dinamo Zagreb is not designed to be a direct replacement for Thierry Henry but the Arsenal boss is more than happy with the attributes Eduardo adds to his squad.

"I would not be scared to throw Eduardo in from the start," Wenger said. "He has settled in very well. Eduardo is a fighter, he can score goals, he is quick, he is a team player so you are never scared to put these players in."
