Arsene Wenger claims he has a stronger Arsenal squad in February than December despite the exit of Alexis Sanchez.
The Gunners sold Sanchez, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Mathieu Debuchy and Francis Coquelin and brought in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos.
Asked by beIN SPORTS whether he now has a stronger squad, he answered: “Yes, but that is all to prove now. I say yes but we have just lost a game 1-0 to Tottenham so what we have in front of us is to show that until the end of the season.
“We have to perform better in every single game and we have to show in every game until the end of the season a complete hunger, to win every single game. That is what it is about for us.
“Have the players who have come in got the quality to give us something special? Yes but it is about us now proving that on the field.”
Wenger also addressed rumours that he will leave Arsenal this summer with a year of his contract remaining and said: “I always respected my contracts.
“I would like to remind you that I said no to all the clubs in the world – to all the biggest clubs in the world – to respect my contract.
“We have to accept in our job that the future is the future, but for me the future is to win your next game.”
