Arsene Wenger says he’s hungier than ever to win the Premier League, knowing that he can’t go on forever.
The Frenchman has won three titles with the Gunners, but hasn’t tasted success in the league since the Invincible season in 2003-4.
He insists that he desire to win it again is high, particularly as competition these days is so intense.
“I was always hungry but I’m more hungry than ever because the demands are higher and because I didn’t win the Premier League for a long time and I want to do that before you get me out of here!,” he said.
“I have always got something to prove. If I play 4 v 4 with you now, you will see that I will try to win. We can play 1 v 1 if you want.”
Sadly nobody took him up on the 1 v 1 offer. Wenger also called on his team to put costly errors behind them, and talked up the attacking potential of his squad.
“We have many opportunities on the offensive front,” he said. “We have variety in midfield, creative midfield, and up front as well.
“What is at stake for us is that we have used our flop already at the start of the season, and we’ve had a strong run.
“It is important that we continue that. We responded well at Everton and it’s important that we focus on repeating that quality that we showed at Everton to prepare ourselves for a tough game.
“Every game is massively difficult.”
