Arsène Wenger faced the media ahead of the Premier League clash with Liverpool. Here's our round-up of the manager's quotes. For the headlines, visit our Digest page:

on Uefa's decision to close a section of CSKA's ground…
It's very difficult. First of all I believe it's very positive that they take action [against racist abuse] and they show they are sensitive to that subject and they have my complete support.

Personally, I would like individuals who abuse other people through racist chants to be punished more than the club. I think today we have the modern technology to isolate people who chant and I would personally prefer much more that individually people become responsible, not only the clubs.

on Arshavin criticising the Emirates atmosphere...
I always said that we had a difficult period at the Emirates last season when people were sceptical about us. They were as well a bit sceptical about him. They did not give him that support that every player needs.

I always thought it is down to us to get the crowd on our side. But since the start of the season, and the part of the crowd that was noisy after Aston Villa, they have been massively behind us.
