Arsenal midfielder Denilson believes Arsene Wenger is right to keep faith with his promising youngsters.
The Gunners boss is famed for nurturing young talent into world-class performers, with a seemingly endless production line continuing to churn out potential superstars at Emirates Stadium.
There have been critics, though, who have suggested that Arsenal's lack of experience is their downfall, justifying this belief by highlighting the club's recent lack of silverware.
However, Denilson believes the young Gunners have the ability to challenge for trophies and has backed his manager's decision to ignore the doubters.
"The manager has always believed in the potential, the professionalism and the ability of his young players," the Brazilian said in The Sun.
"Now he is showing his faith in us and I am grateful to him for that.
"Some people might think we are too young and too inexperienced but we are a very strong team with many great qualities.
"We work a lot with the ball, our technique and control have to be very precise.
"Some teams in England put more emphasis on strength and power but it would be difficult for me to play for a team who are only interested in kicking the ball a long way."
Arsenal appeared to be challengers for the Premier League title for long periods last season, only to suffer a late collapse.
Denilson admits he is at a loss to explain the club's dramatic fall from grace, but is confident the Gunners can make amends this term.
"Last season, we started really well and everyone on the TV and in the newspapers thought Arsenal would be champions," he added.
"But then things changed and our game fell away.
"I don't know why that happened but I think we have improved a lot this time.
"I am happy with my form but part of my personality is to always want to get better. I know I still have to learn and have things to work on.
"Everyone at Arsenal is the same. We are a very professional team with everyone working hard to improve.
"And this time I believe we are good enough to win the league. I think our team will be champions."
