Tomas Rosicky backs Arsenal's youngsters to beat Chelsea in the Carling Cup final.
Tomas Rosicky sees no reason why the club's youngsters cannot go on and beat Chelsea in the Carling Cup final.
An inexperienced Gunners side overcame Tottenham 3-1 after extra-time to book a trip to Cardiff.
Rosicky, who inspired Arsenal after coming on as a 63rd-minute substitute, told Sky Sports: "I think it is fantastic for this young side. These boys are improving every day.
"They have won at Anfield and showed it again today, so why not?"
The competition is the only one to so far have eluded manager Arsene Wenger but the Frenchman insisted he would continue with his policy of selecting youngsters.
He said: "Our young side has improved a lot. They have shown quality and mental strength.
"Tonight when Spurs came back to 1-1 we needed to be mentally strong. We wobbled for a few minutes but in extra time it was all us.
"I will play the right mixture of all the players involved until now. These boys played so well I want to give them the chance."
