“It is true that mentally you cannot ease off before a Champions League game as a few others can”, Wenger said.
And when asked if he believed he got away with everything, in reference to another Mourinho comment, Wenger replied: “No, I didn’t realise that, I must say”.
But Wenger refused to bite and insisted he did not feel like a “king” as Mourinho had called him.
Arsenal host Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester United on Sunday, but that will not impact on Wenger’s team selection, although goalkeeper David Ospina could again be preferred to Petr Cech.
But Walcott believes the former Barcelona star’s scintillating display at Leicester proved he is back in the groove just in time for a crucial Champions League clash with Greek side Olympiakos on Tuesday.
Arsenal followed up their midweek cup success in the North London Derby by moving up to fourth after a 5-2 away win against Leicester.
“I am sure he is going to flourish now with many, many more important goals”, said Walcott. That’s what we focus on.
Sanchez put the Gunners ahead from close range after Theo Walcott had equalised Jamie Vardy’s early goal.
‘The goals are coming in the Premier League and I’ve never been here before except for last season, so yes it is the form of my life but right now it’s just disappointment that we didn’t get the result’.
Memphis Depay, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata got the goals against the struggling visitors, who are yet to win in the league tnis season.
In each of the last five seasons, Arsenal have bee eliminated in the Round of 16. He came from non-league, it’s not easy. Overall he is a striker who is mobile and works hard for the team.
“It is his everyday mannerisms around the training ground, how he trains, his performances, how he scores goals, how he plays and how he defends from up front, these are all things that we can all learn”. In the end though, this led Leicester to be a bit too open at the back, and Arsenal had enough quality to take full advantage.
