Mathieu Flamini believes that the “stability” at Arsenal is an genuine advantage the Gunners have over their rivals.

Arsene Wenger is the longest-serving manager in the English top flight after joining the north London club back in 1996.

The Frenchman’s philosophy has always been based around bringing through as much young talent as possible and not tinkering with his squad too much.

And Flamini, who returned to Arsenal on a free transfer in the summer, feels that Wenger’s approach sets the Gunners apart from their domestic rivals.

“For me it’s not been complicated to be part of the team because the philosophy is still the same here,” Flamini told Arsenal’s website.

“We still think the same way, we still play the same way and that’s because of Arsene Wenger. For me coming back here was like I never left. The difference to other teams is maybe the stability.

“When you look at other teams like Chelsea and Manchester City, you can see a lot of players coming in and coming out.

“I would say that’s the main difference between Arsenal and other teams. I really believe that in football, stability is very important because it gives you continuity.”
