Since a troublesome start to the season, which saw Arsenal sitting as low as 17th in the Premier League table during mid-September, the Gunners have recovered to gain the ascendancy in the battle for the final Champions League place, which is one Arsene Wenger believes his side can support their efforts to win by producing good performances in the games they are due to face this week, according to ESPN.
Subsequently, by producing good displays in the Champions League tonight against A.C Milan and on Saturday when the Gunners travel to Wearside to face Sunderland in the F.A. Cup, Wenger indicates his side can continue to avoid any negative media attention, as they aim to retain a top-four place in the Premier League and secure a first trophy since 2005 over the months between now and the end of the season.
“You could say that the crisis at the moment in England is a bit like fire,” Wenger said. “It moves very quickly from one club to another. It’s like a fire with strong wind so you have to be a bit cautious because it can quickly come back. This is the important time for us. Before the week started, I said that this week would be vital for us. We have to show now [that we can capitalise] and not consider too much whether it’s Chelsea or us. It’s down to us to do well and hopefully we will do it” – http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story/_/id/1022199/arsenal-boss-arsene-wenger-ready-for-‘vital’-week?cc=5739.
