Arsene Wenger says that despite some players being frustrated at not playing as much as they’d like, this Arsenal squad shares a genuine togetherness which is evident in results and performances.
For the sixth time this season, Arsenal came behind to get something from a game, and the manager believes that speaks to the unity there is within the group.
“I think we have a united squad, even if it’s frustrating for some players not to get the number of games they would like to,” he said.
“But everybody is on board. We can only do it all together. At the moment the energy levels in the team is very united and very together, and that’s what we need if we want to be successful.”
The Gunners had to respond to going 1-0 down to a Charlie Adam penalty, and the goals from Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Alex Iwobi fired them to the top of the table.
“It makes you think that six times is not a coincidence,” said Wenger. “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. We want it to be different.
“I believe since we lost at home to Liverpool, in the Premier League and Champions League we have been absolutely remarkably consistent.
“That’s very difficult so it shows that the team is ready to focus and to give absolutely everything to win the games. Can we maintain that collective energy?
“I think we have a chance.”
