Wenger Confident Ahead Of Watford Clash, Rules Out January Signing

Wenger Confident Ahead Of Watford Clash, Rules Out January Signing

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says the Gunners will go into Tuesday's Premier League home clash against struggling Watford hoping to maintain their winning streak.

 

Arsenal are unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions (six wins, one draw).

 

They are currently second in the league table and can cut Chelsea's lead at the top of the log to five points if they beat Watford (Chelsea face Liverpool on Wednesday at Anfield).

 

Speaking at Monday's pre-match press conference, Wenger who is still serving a touchline ban, stated that his team will not relent in their effort to continue to secure important wins.

 

"What is important is that we focus on the quality of performance," Wenger said. 

 

"We have created a run and we must maintain that. Our attitude is spot on and we are ready to fight."

 

Wenger revealed that he will decide who starts against Watford after Monday's training session.

 

He stated that Danny Welbeck is ready for a run in the team but will be managed properly. 

 

"We have some people to check from Saturday and all the players who stayed behind apart from Xhaka are available. We decide after training," he added.

 

"He (Welbeck) is very sharp. Physically he is ready. But we must manage the time we play him and rest him. In the next month he will be completely fit. To come out of what he went through, you have to be mentally strong."

 

And on plans to make any deadline day signing, Wenger said:"It has been very quiet. On our front, we have a big squad and don’t need to buy. Generally, it has been very quiet. It shows there are not many players available who can strengthen the Premier League teams. That’s why not a lot has happened."
