"In some years we have not been good enough. This year we are, and not only because we are in the Final, but because we did it in a convincing way."
Arsène Wenger on his young Gunners

Arsène Wenger was preparing for Sunday's Carling Cup Final against Chelsea when he sat down for an exclusive video interview with Arsenal TV Online at the training ground on Thursday afternoon. The Arsenal boss discussed:

  • his '100 per cent' belief in the young Gunners 
  • his thoughts on the run to the Final
  • the point where Baptista 'becomes the beast'
  • the prospect of winning his first League Cup
  • on reducing Chelsea's efficiency
