Arsene Wenger knows "hungry" Arsenal face a "massive challenge" as they head into what could prove to be a defining period of their campaign - starting on Sunday at struggling Middlesbrough.

The game at the Riverside is the first of a run of eight matches in the space of some 21 days and, with the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Mathieu Flamini, Alex Hleb and Robin van Persie all on the treatment table, the Arsenal boss is well aware how crucial this next month could prove to be.

"It´s a massive challenge and we are still hungry," declared Wenger. "We used to dominate games in the second half, but in the last two games we dropped our pace a little bit. We want to get back to the full 90 minutes because that is needed if you want to be consistent."
