Arsenal manager looking forward to Manchester City clash
Arsene Wenger hoping City clash will see Alexis Sanchez return to scoring form
October 30th, 2017
Arsenal sit fifth in the Premier League table and came from behind to win at Swansea on Saturday, with goals from Kolasinac and Ramsey turning the game on its head after Sam Clucas had fired the opener.
The Gunners have won their past two matches in the Premier League and now head to high-flying Manchester City on Sunday, with Arsene Wenger hoping that his team demonstrate their prowess.
“It’s normal that people have them as champions-elect because they are on a good run and people always extend these good runs to the end of the season but, at some stage, they have to be stopped,” Wenger said.
“It’s true because nobody does that, nobody runs away [with the title]. We can just focus on the game, prepare well and give our best.”
Wenger also spoke about Alexis Sanchez, claiming that the Chilean is frustrated but pointing to the fact he was being heavily marked in matches.
“He runs after a goal at the moment so he’s a bit frustrated when he doesn’t score, like all goalscorers,” Wenger said.
“I’m not worried about it. He works hard and it will come back quickly. You can never try too hard. At the moment he’s marked well, they double up on him, but he still creates many dangerous situations and the goal – he just has not to worry too much. I know you always say that to strikers and they still worry but over a longer period he has always scored and that will come back.”
