Arsene Wenger said Arsenal is ready for their third victory over West Ham United and told Gunners are in top of their form with physical and mental level.
He mentioned ‘Mental Pure’ of his team earned the two consecutive wins since the February. And, now they are aiming for the third.
Wenger said: “We have only one target now,”
“We have come through difficult periods and the team who finishes top is the team who can continue to perform and get results even when the period is a bit more difficult.
“This team has a good mentality. I’ve had many teams in my life and this team is top quality. They have gone through a bad period but, when you play like that [against Watford], that shows that mentally they are pure.
“You have to find a team who clicks at the right moment. You have a whole lot of different reasons [for it happening], because your injured players come back like Welbeck and because of the emergence of players like Iwobi.”
He believes Francis Coquelin and Mohamed Elneny duo will make good outcome against all odds.
“Both of them are improving offensively, When Coquelin plays with Cazorla, Coquelin is the defensive player which made them a perfect pair. Then Coquelin focused more on defending and Cazorla more on attacking.”
“Now both [Elneny and Coquelin] share the job, so the balance is a bit [better]. They’re more similar. We have four attackers in front of them so we need people who can defend well in central midfield.”
One more player he praised after the last match is Alex Iwobi. 19-year-old player showed an impressive show against Watford and dominated on the scoresheet.
