Arsene Wenger eyes continued improvement

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has stated that he is happy with the upturn in form of his side over the last six weeks, but feels his team can still get better.

After a poor start to the season, The Gunners have managed to turn their season round with improved performances and results, capped off by a 3-0 win over West Brom on Saturday.

Despite the Emirates outfit now finding themselves in 7th place, the French coach feels there is a lot more to come from his team.

“I think we have made some improvements, that is for sure. There is still some room for improvement,” he told Mirror Football.

“But I have always said ‘come back in December’ because, for us, the real test we knew was Chelsea.

“After winning a big game we had to see if we could repeat that performance and then get the consistency from now on,” he stated.
Saturday’s win puts Arsenal level on points with Liverpool, and gives Wenger’s men a positive goal difference for the first time this season.

Wenger wants to overtake the Anfield club into sixth place, and is relieved that his side have now scored more goals than they have conceded.

“Well, we put ourselves at a big handicap with the 8-2 at Manchester so we had a mountain to climb. I was not used to seeing that as well.

“It was a shock every time when you see a minus in front of your goal difference.

“That could make the difference at the end of the season so not only is it the first time we have a positive goal difference, but if you look at the teams that are just above us there is not a massive difference.

“We are plus two, they are plus four so that is catchable,” he concluded.

Arsenal’s next fixture is against Norwich at Carrow Road next Saturday.
