After two outstanding strikes from Tomas Rosicky on Saturday, Mr Wenger believes he can emulate the feats of Lujngberg & Pires of a few seasons ago.
Rosicky's sumptuous strikes helped dump the FA Cup holders out of the competition, however they were his first goals since he opened his account with a screamer away to Hamburg in the Champions League.
Now Arsene Wenger believes he can go on to become a prolific goal scoring midfielder.
'He can be like Ljungberg and Pires,' said Wenger. 'Together they scored 25 goals a season and that is worth a lot of points. At the moment we haven't had that and it is important to get it, especially in games like [Saturday's] when the strikers get a little less service. It is important that goals come from midfield.'
'Rosicky can score more goals because he is quick, he has good timing and he is very accurate in his finishing. I think he puts too much pressure on himself to finish and he sometimes rushes his decision making. I hope this will help him to be more calm in front of goal.'
AW also thinks the lack of goals can play a little too much on a players mind, thus making the situation worse.
'Sometimes the best thing is not to talk about it too much because it can make a problem of it,' said Wenger. 'We have just tried to tell him to relax because he wants to do so well.'
'He is a very good player and he has shown that again. He is mobile, clean technically, a quick decision maker and I like him very much. He also has a very helpful attitude for the team, he is happy playing on the flank because he wants to help the team.'
