With the Croatia international off the mark for his new club, Arsenal boss Wenger is backing Eduardo to be a prolific scorer.
"I find Eduardo more at ease on the left flank where he has the tricks of a winger, whereas (Theo) Walcott is more comfortable on the right," said Wenger.
"Eduardo is a great striker and you could see that from the way he played against Sparta.
"We did not always have the drive to find our strikers because our main concern was to keep the ball.
"But if you find Eduardo and supply him with chances, he will score goals. He's a box player."
The 3-0 success at Emirates Stadium secured a 5-0 aggregate win over Sparta and Wenger was happy to reach the UEFA Champions League group phase in professional fashion.
He added: "We finished the job well by scoring an early goal and that took a little bit of the edge out of the game.
"We kept good focus and didn't concede over the two legs, but scored five goals.
"We got two late goals and you felt that if needed to we could put our foot down on the gas and score.
"I feel the confidence is there and that we can produce good performances."
