Following Tuesday's glittering performance in Istanbul, Arsène Wenger's side travel to Upton Park for their second London derby of the season.

The Gunners, buoyed by the return of William Gallas and Kolo Toure, face Gianfranco Zola’s new-look West Ham on Sunday and the manager spoke exclusively to Arsenal TV Online before the short trip to E13. He discussed:

  • the win at Fenerbahce
  • why qualification is nearly ‘job done’
  • resting players later on in the group
  • the big teams qualifying early
  • meeting Stan Kroenke at the AGM
  • his ‘reasons to be cheerful’
  • defensive stability
  • the long-lasting effects of the Hull game
  • financial instability at West Ham
  • if Gianfranco Zola is ‘too nice’ to be a manager
