London: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger saluted Lukas Podolski after his brace helped the Gunners pick up their first Premier League points of the season in a 3-1 win at Fulham.

While Olivier Giroud opened the scoring in the 14th minute, it was two brilliant finishes from the German forward either side of half-time that saw off Fulham, who could only respond with a consolation strike from substitute Darren Bent on his debut.

All the talk over the summer has been about Arsenal's inability to attract new star names to the club, but with Giroud having scored three goals in his first three matches and Podolski coming into form, Wenger believes the best could still be to come from both players in their second seasons in north London.
