Wenger: Arsenal will give ‘absolutely everything’ against Man City
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger vows the Gunners will give "absolutely everything" against Man City on Saturday morning
Arsene Wenger has promised that Arsenal will give “absolutely everything” against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
The Gunners, who are five points clear at the top of the Premier League, booked their place in the Champions League last 16 after finishing as runners-up in Group F following a 2-0 loss to Napoli on Wednesday night.
We have done our job now we will give absolutely everything on Saturday morning
Arsenal could face the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in the knockout stage, but Wenger wants his side to focus on their league title bid ahead of a crunch clash against fourth-placed City.
“To finish second makes the potential draw more difficult, in the last four or five years we have had very difficult draws, so maybe this time we will be more lucky,” Wenger said.
“That is the frustration (not winning the group), because you feel there was room to do better, but it could have been worse as well.
“Of course to finish second makes the potential draw more difficult. For now we have a little breather to focus on the championship.
“We have done our job now we will give absolutely everything on Saturday morning.”
