There’s been an upturn in our fortunes recently: three games, three wins and three at the back working well.
After a difficult February and a tough March, Arsene Wenger is delighted to see his team starting to build a consistent run of victories - and he attributes it to the team’s attitude.
- Team news: Koscielny, Ox, Mustafi
- Wenger - I expect it to be an open derby
- Watch our best goals at White Hart Lane
“I think it's quite special,” he said. “You look at the numbers, we are the team that has scored more goals than anybody else in the final part of games. We have the highest number, by far, to have scored in the final 10 minutes of games, more than anybody else in this league.
“The players who came on contributed more than in any other team. It's true that for a while, the first Bayern game and Chelsea game was a big knock. For a while we [were a] bit like a boxer who got put on the floor twice.
“We lost a little bit and people interpreted that as them not caring. No. Maybe it's because they care very much that we were like that - shocked. We were shocked.
“The turning point is that you have to revolt and say 'Come on, that cannot go on’. The players have a good mentality. I love the attitude of this team.”
Look out for more polls soon
