Wenger wants fitting tribute

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger has called on his Arsenal team not to let the club's 125th anniversary celebrations detract them from delivering a match-winning performance against Everton on Saturday.

The Gunners on Friday unveiled statues to three legends - record-goalscorer Thierry Henry, Double-winning captain Tony Adams and former manager Herbert Chapman - as part of a weekend of tributes, which include a guard of honour for some more famous club personalities ahead of kick-off at Emirates Stadium.

"History is one thing, performance on the day is another, and that is what is important for us at the moment," the Arsenal boss said.
