Arsetalks brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Ahead of the Champions League group A game against Ludogerets, Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest news as regards the likes of Oliver Giroud and Granit Xhaka.
After two games, Arsenal are tied on points with Paris Saint Germain. Both teams have just 4 points to show for their efforts after playing a draw in the last fixtures against.
Granit Xhaka is also in the news for the wrong reasons, having recorded a red card in the last game. This makes it eight red cards in two years, and that has gotten the fans talking.
This is what Wenger has to say about the current situation at the Emirates stadium:
on Giroud’s return…
He is an important player in our squad. The squad is not 11, we are 25 players and everybody will contribute at different parts of the season. What sometimes looks permanent in October is completely revolutionised in December. We all have only one target: to be successful together, no matter who it is.
on Xhaka’s red card…
It is one red card. We are not responsible for the red cards he got somewhere else. Yes, he made a foul that could have got him a yellow card, that could have got him a red card and it was not meant to hurt anybody. It was just a late tackle to stop the counter-attack that has been punished. He is intelligent enough to analyse that as well.
on the title race…
It’s difficult to say, to predict. But what you see after eight games played — it’s tight. That shows that it’s down to how well you can play in every single game to keep up there and to fight for the championship. We have to show that we can be consistent, I think the team is focused, the team wants to play the football we want, they believe in what we do and with our good ingredients after we have to show the desire, the hunger in every single game.
