On Stoke: We had some bad memories from Stoke but we had some good memories as well, it’s just down to our performance on the day”. “Stoke always had good players, let’s not forget they qualified for the Europa League

Team News: “Vermaelen and Ozil are back in the squad, we have doubts over Monreal and Gibbs”

Mesut Ozil: “He had a difficult game against Bayern and sometimes it’s good to refresh when you are under pressure”.

Premier League: “I honestly think the Premier League is the most difficult in the world because it’s the only league that has good teams from 1-20”. “We cannot speculate too much about other results because we are in a period where we only look forward”.

Joel Campbell’s future: Wenger was impressed with the 21-year-old’s performance but has not yet reached any conclusions about his future.“I will decide that later. Why not? We bought him to bring him here,” the manager said.“He was good, convincing going forward [against Man United]. He looks like he has adapted a bit better to the physical side of the European game.“We always knew that he had the talent to create something special. He did rely a bit too much on that.“But he’s now been out with three different clubs; he was with Lorient, Real Betis and now Olympiacos. He has learned the toughness of the European leagues.”

Ox: “Deserves to be called up to next England squad”
