Wenger- Clearer picture at the end of November

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger claims a clearer idea of his where his team are will be visible at the end of November.

Arsenal extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points with an impressive display against Liverpool at the weekend, but the Gunners' boss is keen not to get ahead of himself.

Wenger told "At the moment, with 10 games played, you can say 25 per cent of the season [has been played]. You see the first tendencies and trends but it’s still not settled.

“By the end of November you will have a clearer idea."

It would appear that the long-serving manager is all too aware of how quickly it can change in football stating: 

"After the Aston Villa game, if I had told you that [we'd be where we are now] I would have to run away because you would have killed me.

"It shows you that things can change quickly but that should as well alert us that it can go the other way. We must keep good focus, continue to develop our team as there’s room for improvement."

Arsenal head to Germany to take on Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League in a vital game in terms of progression from the group this week. And Wenger wants to take the confidence from the Liverpool result into that game.

"It's very, very important now to continue our run and respond well against Dortmund because everybody will look at that game.

“It’s a big game but let’s recover first and afterwards I’m sure the team will go there with a great desire."

Following the win at the Emirates at the weekend, Arsenal top the Premier League on 25 points, five points clear of their nearest competition. However fans will be keen to see them replicate their domestic form in Europe as they still face a tough challenge to qualify from the 'group of death'.
