Wenger happy with Arsenal’s spirit and Sagna’s performance!

The Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was obviously impressed with his team’s back to the wall performance against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light last weekend, and thinks that if the team continues with this spirit then they can overcome any difficulty.

In fact he thinks that going down to ten men may have helped them to be more resilient. “I feel that we do quite well with 10 men,” Wenger said on Arsenal.com.

“The only negative performance with 10 men was against Manchester City, because it was early in the game. I always thought if it stayed 0-0 until half-time, we’d have a chance to win the game, even against Manchester City.

The Arsenal and England legend David Seaman was at the South Bank saving penalties for Yahoo! this weekend (or letting them in!) and was inevitably asked about the goalkeeping situation at the Emirates.

He seems to agree with Arsene Wenger that Lukasz Fabianski is very talented, and that Manuel Almunia is the perfect age for a goalkeeper. In fact he thinks all four keepers at Arsenal are pretty good!
