Arsenal are more threatening from set pieces these days, according to Arsène Wenger.

The Frenchman saw his team take all three points at Everton on Wednesday thanks to a thumping header from Thomas Vermaelen in the first half at Goodison Park.

Laurent Koscielny and Yossi Benayoun have also got on the end of corners in recent months and Wenger feels they are becoming more of a weapon for his team.

"We are a bit more dangerous because I feel our runs are better, our combinations are better and overall we look more dangerous," he told Arsenal Player.

"I remember Benayoun scoring from a corner [at Aston Villa in December], which you don't expect. That brought us two important extra points, and against Everton we again scored from a corner.

"That goes against the idea that we are not good on set pieces and if you look at the number of points we have taken, it is not fantastic but it is not too bad. Benayoun is a technical player and on the night you are very grateful because you don't expect him to score a header."
