Arsene Wenger stated he has no doubts in regards to the character of his Arsenal side.
Arsene Wenger stated that when a number of his preceding sides could have lacked fight, his current crop of Arsenal stars have been diverse.
Wenger oversaw a gritty 1-0 win over Newcastle United in the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, and said his side showed plenty of character to overcome their stubborn opponents.
“It is a further aspect of your group which is tested inside a game like that,” Wenger stated following the win.
“You fight, not to concede a target, not panic and wait for your possibility. We had been a lot more questioned on that aspect than the way we play football, so it can be very good occasionally to win like that.
“I have belief because of the expertise, the high-quality with the attitude.
“I believe a team always features a charisma. For those who appear in the team as a unit, it is actually like someone. When you appear at your team like someone along with the vibes coming out, it is possible to sense – whenever you are a extended time inside the job – if there is something in there or not.
“In my job, in the event you don’t believe within your team you happen to be within a undesirable shape.”
Wenger stated the team’s higher expertise was accountable for the enhanced determination.
“I consider they may be more skilled. When we moved in to the stadium right here the typical age was 23 or 24. On our day we could play everybody off the park but whenever you had to dig deep, come out with your understanding and your encounter, it was a little more complicated – but they are different teams,” he stated.
“Our target, and my target, will be to get the top out of the team and, if doable, be sure no one is better than us.
“If somebody is better than us, it’s sport.”
Wenger stated he would give his players a couple of days off coaching to rest their tired bodies immediately after a hectic Christmas schedule, for the duration of which Arsenal played three games in eight days, winning their final two soon after a shock 4-0 loss to Southampton on Boxing Day.
“I will give them a few days, an additional rest but you by no means know what shape they come back in,” he stated.
“It depends what you do when you have a rest. You could come back more tired.”
