Arsene Wenger believes his side's confidence is improving after Aaron Ramsey's last-gasp goal ensured Arsenal beat Marseille 1-0 in the Champions League.

The Gunners now top Group F and, considering the early-season woes that saw them lose 8-2 at Manchester United and 4-3 at Blackburn Rovers, the transformation is impressive.

Wenger's team have won five of their last six matches in all competitions and face a Premier League game against Stoke City on Sunday that they can be backed at 13/2 to win 2-0.

They are now 25/1 to win the Champions League and 5/2 to finish in the top four of the Premier League.

Wednesday's game seemed certain to end goalless until substitute Ramsey scored a dramatic stoppage-time winner.

Wenger admitted after the game: "For the qualification it's a very important goal, for the confidence as well.

"Marseille defended in a very disciplined way, but you could see in the last 15 minutes we started to create opportunities. We showed patience and discipline.

"Everyone questioned how we would cope defensively and I think we did well. The spirit is good and slowly our game becomes stronger."
