‘How we turned it around after Swansea'

Team celebrate v Burnley

Arsène Wenger believes the response Arsenal have shown since last season’s home defeat to Swansea City is evidence of their improved mental strength.

That loss all but ended the Gunners’ chance of becoming champions in 2015/16, but they have lost only one of their next 17 Premier League games.

“We have shown mental strength,” the boss said. “That’s the only thing we could do.

“We had to respond. The vibes are positive. We have reduced distance with the top teams.

"You focus on what is important and what can help you. The way the team plays and what is important and accept the assessment of people around you"

“We have to continue to get to the top level. We have to create a positive environment and to do that we have to perform. The rest we have to ignore. Let’s focus on the way we perform and the way we play.

“You focus on what is important and what can help you. The way the team plays and what is important and accept the assessment of people around you.

“Fans are part of you and have the right to be happy, not to be happy. My job is to focus on trying to make them happy.

“I believe our fans are behind us. It is strange because in 2016 how many games have we lost away from home? One at Man United. When you listen to people you’d never believe it.”

What's the score going to be on Saturday?
