Arsène Wenger admits he has not seen a more sizable Arsenal defence during his time at the Club.

The Arsenal manager has seen his backline concede just seven goals in their last eight matches in all competitions, and believes his side’s height advantage is paying dividends.

“One of the advantages - I said before the game - is that I have not seen such a tall Arsenal team at the back,” he said.

“You have Koscielny, Mertesacker, Vermaelen and Santos who are tall.

“I look a bit lost because there are no small players in there.”
