Arsène Wenger had a lot to discuss when he faced the media ahead of Wednesday's clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

There are always plenty of talking points before the North London derby but the arrival of Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane and the news of Tony Adams' appointment at Portsmouth added some extra spice to proceedings. Wenger discussed:

  • his happiness at Adams' new opportunity
  • why Mr. Arsenal can be a successful boss
  • the importance of English managers in the Premier League
  • dealing with the 'Redknapp effect'
  • why the derby is so special
  • maintaining their winning run
  • table-topping Liverpool
  • Hull's imperious form
