The 63-year-old Arsenal boss has lauded the qualities of the two South American forwards as their respective clubs, PSG and Monaco, prepare to do battle on Sunday
Both forwards moved to Ligue 1 this summer, with the Colombian notching four times in his first five league appearances while Cavani has struck twice for les Parisiens.

"I believe it's very difficult to make a difference because for me they are very similar. They have an animal aspect inside of them. Both of them are animals," Wenger told Bein Sport.
"I think Cavani is a bit more mobile, and makes more runs off the ball, and Falcao is a bit more of a box player, a bit more of a killer than Cavani.
"But both of them, I love. And honestly, not to protect one or the other, but it's very difficult to make a difference between the two."
