Veteran boss Arsène Wenger said his club's 2-0 victory against Tottenham otspur yesterday proves that the Arsenal squad is strong and deep with talent.
Wenger made four changes to his team for the recent North London Derby, with Lukasz Fabianski, Thomas Vermaelen, Serge Gnabry and Tomas Rosicky all coming in.
"I loved Serge’s game because he is not only an individual talent but his position on the pitch was right ands his contribution to the team work was right," said Wenger on Arsenal.com.
“We have a bigger squad than people expect,” he said. “Especially when you see people like Gnabry - we had Gibbs and Ramsey out - [it shows] we have plenty of players who can compete for a place in the team.
“I loved Serge’s game because he is not only an individual talent but his position on the pitch was right ands his contribution to the team work was right. He gave two or three balls to score and I like that, it’s a sign of quality.
“I will give him more games but he plays on the right in the position where Walcott plays, but he can play on the left as well. It’s about balance in the team as well, and about the balance between attacking and defending. He’s a very intelligent player.”
With the transfer window open, Wenger insists the current climate means doing deals may prove challenging.
“We are like everyone, we look out there and see what is happening,” he said. “Unless you have a club in a desperate financial situation it will be difficult.”
