Wenger Dismisses Chelsea Success As ‘Luck’

Arsene Wenger has claimed that Chelsea got extremely lucky to win the Champions League last season and that the Premier League is still the most important trophy, as reported by the Daily Mirror.

Wenger saw his Arsenal side beaten at home by Chelsea on Saturday, but Wenger claimed the season long test of the Premier League will test Chelsea this season.

Wenger told the Daily Mirror: “In the Champions League, you play one big game at a time. In the Premier League you play many big teams and you have to do well against all of them.

“I still think the Premier League is the massive test.

“One piece of luck Chelsea had last season was Didier Drogba in the first part of the season did not play a lot.

“He came into it in the second half of the season and he made the decision, he was fresh, focused, had a good rest and still hungry to make it happen and he had the quality to do it.

“If you tell me would you like to win the Champions League I will of course say yes, but it’s a cup competition – not at the start, but in the final part of it, it is a real cup competition.

“You need to go into March and April with your best players available, fit, and that’s not easy, especially when you play in the Premier League.”
