Ashley Westwood has warned Arsenal they should be having sleepless nights before facing Christian Benteke.

The midfielder has backed the striker to terrorise the Gunners in Saturday's FA Cup final.

Westwood believes Benteke has his fear factor back after struggling for form and fitness before Tim Sherwood's arrival, following an Achilles injury over a year ago.

He said: "I'm sure he does. I think he's back to full fitness now, he was struggling with his Achilles early on and people didn't see that, they just expected him to walk back in and fire in the goals.

"But he's back to his best now, bullying defenders and I'm sure they'll have sleepless nights, they won't want to be playing against him.

"We know how good we are, if we play like we can do we can match anyone. We've got internationals throughout the team, Fabs (Fabian Delph) and Clevs (Tom Cleverley) are on form, Christian is a real handful for anyone, I'm sure they'll be having sleepless nights about him."

Arsene Wenger hopes Arsenal can enjoy their final match of the Premier League season against West Brom and get back on the goal trail at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners are all but sure of third place, starting the final weekend three points ahead of Manchester United and with a superior goal difference.

It is unusual for us. If you look at the games, we had the chances to score in every single game.

What we want to do is to continue to play our game, but better, quicker, with more movement and then we will score again.

The finishing is in cycles and we have gone through a cycle that is a bit less positive.

However, before we scored goals for fun and I am sure if we just concentrate on the quality of our game that we will score again.

– Arsene Wenger
