Arsene Wenger wary of threat posed by Foxes
Arsene Wenger warned against any complacency when the Gunners take on newly promoted Leicester City on Sunday.
They have been impressive in their first two games,” Wenger said. “They had a very good result against Everton and not only did they get a good result but they came back which showed mental strength as well.
“At Chelsea, they played very well. I have seen the report [on them] at Chelsea. It is a team who has very good defensive solidity. They are good at counter attacking, they have two good players on the flanks as well who are very quick.
“It is a team with a lot of threats. I think they have just bought two players as well. They bought Cambiasso from Inter Milan who is a very good, intelligent player so they will be a big challenge for us.”
Arsenal haven’t played the Foxes since the last game of the 2004 season, when the Gunners invincibles won 2-1 to complete an unbeaten season and condemn Leicester to relegation.
Wenger also recalled game against Leicester, at Filbert Street in August 1997.
“I remember two things; the first was a sensational goal from Dennis Bergkamp and my first experience with Ian Wright when I took him off and he didn’t understand why,” said Wenger. “I wanted to spare him some minutes at the end of the game. I think we were caught back and played 3-3 or something like that.
“I’ve many times said that Dennis Bergkamp scored one of the greatest goal I’ve seen in my career on that night.”
Arsene reported no new injury problems ahead of the match, with Arteta and Gibbs not yet ready to return. Ospina and Gnabry back in training, but not yet ready to be included in the squad and with Giroud out until the New Year.
What do you think. Can the Gunners get their first away win of the season on Sunday.
