Arsène Wenger admits he has always been baffled by the suggestion that playing away from home is a hindrance.

The Frenchman takes his side to White Hart Lane on Sunday for an eagerly-awaited North London derby and a chance to secure a second consecutive win in the Premier League.

But regardless of whether the game is at Spurs or Emirates Stadium, Wenger insists his side will stick to their guns.

“Never in my life could I understand the difference between away and home,” he said. “For me it is a football match and no matter where we play you try to play well.

“The next game against Tottenham is always a test of course.”

Arsenal have won their last three matches in all competitions following Wednesday night’s Champions League win over Olympiacos, and the manager believes his team is growing in stature with every positive result.

“Every win makes you stronger, especially when you come from a difficult period,” he said. “For us it's important to get wins together and get the confidence back.”
