Ahead of Sunday’s crucial clash with Manchester City, Wenger believes he knows what it takes to beat the side who currently have a five-point lead at the top of the EPL table.
The Gunners would like to bring a halt to City’s incredible start to the season when they go to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday. Pep Guardiola’s side are right now unbeaten in their opening 16 games in all competitions and there has even been a discussion of whether they could go the entire season undefeated.
Be that as it may, City has won six of their last nine games in all competitions with the North London side, and Arsenal claimed a critical 2-0 win over the then reigning champions in 2015.
While, Arsenal have won six of their 10 league games this season and sit in fifth place, level on points with Chelsea and nine points behind their adversaries on Sunday.
Regardless of the massive point gap, Wenger has a game plan and remains optimistic about his side’s odds in the Etihad clash on Sunday.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, he stated: “I believe we can beat them,”
“Maybe if I listen to the so-called experts, City are better than ever before, so that could be a bigger test for us.
“We have to try and contain them when they have the ball as they are a force going forward. The number of goals they’ve scored is quite impressive. It would be suicidal not to be careful defensively. We need to produce a strong defensive performance as a team. That might not be enough.
“It could be an open game as we will attack when we have the ball – although we won’t play with seven strikers.”
