Kolo Toure believes Arsene Wenger can continue to work his 'magic' as Arsenal manager and land a trophy this season.

The Gunners are without a trophy of note since the FA Cup final triumph over Manchester United in 2005 - a game in which Toure featured.

The Ivorian has, however, since left the Emirates Stadium for Manchester City, but retains a healthy relationship with his former mentor.

And, says the 30-year-old defender, Arsenal will win something sooner rather than later, as long as Wenger is still at the helm.

"Can they win something? Definitely," he stated.

"It's magic: Mr Wenger brings in any player and makes him better. He's a fantastic manager, he knows how to see promising young players and that is a great quality for him.

"They have young players working really hard and they played very well. Emmanuel Frimpong was fantastic and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was very good. They made us work very hard."

Toure was back at Arsenal on Tuesday night as Manchester City faced the Gunners in the quarter-final of the Carling Cup.

City emerged as victors on that occasion, and Toure says it was nice to be able to visit his Arsenal 'family'.

"Going back to the Emirates was just like going home to your family," he added. "I was talking to the boss, who I am still close to and we still talk regularly."
