Arsene Wenger: What makes Arsenal remarkably dangerous
The Arsenal manager is happy with his improved squad depth
Arsene Wenger says Arsenal’s improved squad depth makes the Gunners “remarkably dangerous”.
The north London side rescued a point at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon as Olivier Giroud cancelled out Juan Mata’s opener.
Wenger brought on the France international in the 73rd minute against Jose Mourinho’s side as Arsenal maintained their unbeaten record.
Giroud’s fellow substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain provided the cross for the 30-year-old’s late equaliser at the Theatre of Dreams.
And the Arsenal manager hailed the Gunners’ improved options from the bench after their 1-1 draw with the 20-time English champions on Saturday.
“I think we have the quality and the spirit on the bench. The two together makes us remarkably dangerous until the last minute. Since the start of the season, look at the number of goals we’ve scored in the final five minutes. That is not a coincidence,” Wenger told Arsenal’s website.
Arsenal are in fourth place in the Premier League table and six points adrift of leaders Liverpool after 12 top-flight games.
The Gunners haven’t lost a Premier League fixture since a 4-3 defeat by Liverpool in their opening fixture of the 2016-17 campaign.
Wenger’s side will host Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in their next Champions League game at The Emirates on Wednesday night.
Arsenal finished in second place in the Premier League table last season.
