Arsène Wenger faced the media ahead of the Premier League clash with West Bromwich Albion. Here's our round-up of the manager's quotes. For the headlines, visit our Digest page:
on birthday boy Tomas Rosicky... First of all I believe he is a real Arsenal man because he is here for a long time. He is really a football player who presents the way we want to play football, because he's a team player who has pace, has a quick brain, understands the game well, and I always like to have him in the team because of all these qualities.
on the reason for Arsenal's away form... Basically because we don't look too much at the fact [whether] it is away or home. We play with the same desire and the same attitude, and as well because we have a level of confidence that is there. But West Brom represents as well a good test for us because, on the back of an outstanding result at Manchester United, their confidence is certainly high as well, so it will be a very interesting test.
on maintaining the winning run... For us it is important to maintain our consistent run and to continue to develop as a team because if you look at the broader picture we have had quite a good consistent run since March. But it is important of course that we continue to develop. I believe we can still do better, that there is more to come from us, but that will depend now on how much we want it and how hungry we are to improve.
