Wenger gives key reasons why Arsenal are his ‘surprise package’
Arsene Wenger has given a number of key reasons as to why Arsenal “can be the surprise package” in the Premier League this season.
Arsenal have started the campaign well, winning three of their first four Premier League games, losing only to reigning champions Liverpool.
Mikel Arteta has enjoyed an excellent first ten months in the job, overseeing a wonderful summer transfer window after delivering the FA Cup and Community Shield to north London.
Wenger, who left the Emirates in 2018 and admits he might have stayed in an executive role if offered, sees his former club as a potential “surprise package”.
Asked for the one piece of advice he would give Arteta, he told The Guardian: “To continue to have a grip on the team, as he has at the moment. And to go to the end of his beliefs.
“I think there is a good team spirit and they have a good chance to do well. I believe it will not be very difficult to improve on the number of points they got last season. But I’m convinced Arsenal can be in the top four, if not more.
“Why not more? They can be the surprise package for me this year: they bought well, they strengthened the defence well. And they kept the players who were already there.
“In my last year I bought Aubameyang, they kept him. They have every ingredient and no real weakness.
“A club is about identity. Identity is about values and values are about the people who carry these values. And so it’s important there is a continuity on that front for me.”
