Arsene Wenger believes that his Arsenal side is better equiped to contest three different competitions in the space of a week than last years team, as they will have learnt from the disappointments and are more mature this time around.
He is of course well aware of how important the next seven days are for the club. He said: “We go into a period that will decide our season,”
“I think it is that important because in one week we play three games in three different competitions.
“In every single competition we are, of course, in a position where we want to win our games.
“It did not come off last season because one big disappointment can have a consequence on the next one.
“It makes me confident this time because I feel the team has the mental strength and a fantastic attitude on a daily basis. And from what we have learned from last year.”
It is definitely squeaky-bum-time, despite there still being a few months left of the season, let’s hope we are all feeling just as confident next Sunday!
