Despite the heavy snowfall all over Hertfordshire on Friday, Arsène Wenger faced the media at the training ground ahead of Sunday’s North London derby.

At a very busy press conference the manager discussed:

  • his take on the last-minute Arshavin deal
  • his possible inclusion in Sunday’s squad
  • the ‘must win’ derby
  • preparing ‘normally’ despite the weather
  • Michel Platini’s idea for a salary cap
  • his response to Steve Coppell’s view on the Arshavin deal
  • David Beckham’s AC Milan move
  • Arsenal’s good record against Tottenham in the last 10 years
  • Bacary Sagna and Samir Nasri’s contribution this season
  • Tottenham’s ‘new’ signings
  • Tomas Rosicky’s progress
