Arsene Wenger: This highlights Arsenal’s mental strength
The Gunners boss talks up the north London side's mental strength
Arsene Wenger has praised Arsenal’s mental strength after the Gunners were 3-1 winners against Stoke City at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The north London outfit came from 1-0 down to secure three points at The Emirates after Stoke had broken the deadlock in the first half of the Premier League clash.
Switzerland international Granit Xhaka caught Joe Allen with an elbow and Charlie Adam broke the deadlock from the penalty spot with a calm finish past Petr Cech.
However, Theo Walcott levelled the Premier League clash three minutes before half-time with a close-range finish to score his 100th goal of his club career.
Germany international Mesut Ozil netted a looping header to edge the Gunners into a slender lead before Alex Iwobi came off the bench to wrap up three points.
Speaking at his post-match media conference at the Emirates Stadium following Arsenal’s 3-1 win against Stoke, Wenger discussed the Gunners’ mental strength.
“It makes you think that six times is not a coincidence,” Wenger said.
“As well it makes you think in the future when you go 1-0 down, this game is far from lost because you know your players have the strength to fight and come back. Overall I believe that’s very positive for us.”
Arsenal haven’t lost a Premier League game since August.
