Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini has hailed the 1,000 game milestone Arsene Wenger will reach on Saturday, ESPN has reported.

Wenger will take charge of the landmark game in the top of the Premier League table clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, having become Arsenal manager in 1996. Flamini, who is in his second spell under Wenger, offered his compliments to Wenger and added Arsenal now want to go on and win the title.

“It's an unbelievable achievement,” Flamini said. “He means so much to the club for the achievements he has done until now. Congratulations to him, first of all.

“I think he’s someone who knows exactly what he wants. He has a vision since the beginning, he's moved to Arsenal and he still has the same one. He knows exactly how he wants to play and he's not really changed, he's still the same person.

“We have a few more games to come which are not easy, because Chelsea and Manchester City are also fighting for the title,” Flamini added. “In the title race, it's very important not to drop any more points because it's not a marathon now, it's a sprint. We have a few more games and we want to win every single one.

“It's a great opportunity, everyone is waiting for Arsenal to win a title and everyone is talking around the club that Arsenal haven't won a title for a while. It's a great opportunity for us and it's in our hands and I can assure everyone we will do everything to go through and win it this year.”

Flamini has made a total of 182 appearances for Arsenal in his two spells, first joining from Marseille in 2004 and playing 153 times, then spending five years in Serie A with Milan before returning this summer and, to date, featuring in a further 29 games.

The 30-year-old was not part of any of Wenger’s title winning teams, with his only trophies as an Arsenal player coming in the 2004 Community Shield and the 2005 FA Cup.
