Despite another week of speculation surrounding the ownership of Arsenal, Arsène Wenger insists that nothing has happened to affect the status quo at Emirates Stadium.

American businessman Stan Kroenke bought 9.9 per cent of the Club's shares last week and, on official confirmation of this purchase, revealed his overall stake as 11.26 per cent this week.

This week Peter Hill-Wood admitted that he is "in the dark" over Kroenke's plans but was not concerned about recent developments.

Wenger echoed his Chairman's thoughts at his pre-match press conference on Friday and insisted that it is 'business as usual' at Emirates Stadium.

"The Chairman has said two things," said Wenger. "One was [to ask] what are the guy's intentions and the other is that he is determined to keep the Club under control with the board he has.

"That means 10 per cent of the shares have moved from one person to another but that doesn't change the life inside the Club and it doesn't affect the area where decisions are taken."
