Arsène Wenger admits it is “extremely difficult” competing on four fronts but, for the time being at least, he insists Arsenal don’t have to choose between the quartet of competitions they remain in.

February promises to be another busy month with four Premier League games, an FA Cup tie at Leyton Orient, a trip to Wembley for the Carling Cup Final and the small matter of a UEFA Champions League clash with Barcelona at Emirates Stadium.

But while conceding it will be hard going, the manager believes he can still juggle his squad without having to sacrifice a competition.

“The history shows that it is extremely difficult [to compete on four fronts],” said Wenger.

“But it is very difficult to say to my players 'we do not go for this competition now' because we are in there and it is difficult to choose.

“We are not at the stage where we have to make a choice but we want to go for everything.”
