"These people have seen many good players over the years and they know straight away when a player has something special, so they acknowledge that," Wenger told the club's website (www.arsenalfc.com).
"You cannot cheat people. They've seen how quickly he's improved and how well he's played. It's surprising how quickly he's integrated into our game," he said of the 19-year-old.
"He's worked with us since the start of the season and he has grown, gained confidence and when he came in he had an impact straight away. I didn't expect that level of efficiency or impact on the scoresheet."
The win against Watford narrowed the gap between Arsenal in third and Tottenham Hotspur in second to four points.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
