Wenger hails Arsenal mentality

Posted: Apr 7, 2015 at 5:00 pm   /   by   /   comments (0)

Arsenal has displayed superb form in recent weeks and Arsene Wenger is confident there is more to come from his side.

Arsenal has won 10 out of its last 11 matches and appear well-placed to finish in the top two for the first time since 2005.

“We have a good mentality and good cohesion in the team. There is something happening,” Wenger said.

“That shows you that they are ready to fight for each other. You can see that – you can’t cheat on that.

“You smell that we can score goals. If you look at the number of goals we’ve scored now [62 in 31 league games], that’s quite good with seven games to go.

“And defensively we are getting better. I think you also have to give credit to players who get less, such as (Francis) Coquelin. In the first half he broke up many attacks in a convincing way.”

Arsenal appears unlikely to overhaul league leaders Chelsea, who hold a seven-point advantage with a game in hand.
