Tomas Rosicky believes the Arsenal midfield has at last discovered a goal-scoring knack.

Arsène Wenger's side have scored nine times in five competitive games this season and six of those have come from midfield. Rosicky and Fabregas both hit the net as Arsenal beat Sparta Prague 3-0 on Wednesday to progress to the group stages of the Champions League. Afterwards the Czech international talked about improving one of the side's problem areas.

"Yes we have started very well," he said. "Cesc is scoring goals, Alex is scoring goals, me too. So it is going better. We have to score more now to help our strikers.

"We still like to pass the ball in midfield. Maybe we should shoot more but this is our way of playing. It is just us. But everybody can see we are capable of scoring from midfield now."
