Arsène Wenger has been impressed with Nicklas Bendtner's performances this season but says the striker must continue to improve his game.

The Dane has played a part in all six of Arsenal's Premier League games so far this term and scored the goal that set off Arsenal's comeback in the Champions League match against Standard Liege.

The striker has now made over 100 appearances for Arsenal, progressing his game season-on-season to the delight of manager Wenger.

"Since the beginning of the season I'm very happy with him," said the Frenchman. "So far he has played in many games, performed and improved.

"He is a player who will improve every year. Nicklas is a good size and is a very pacy player considering his size. He has an intelligent game with good vision."

However, Wenger highlighted two key areas where he wants to see Bendtner develop his game.

"He needs to improve his movement and his finishing," said Wenger. "And he will do that."
