Wenger hails striking options at Arsenal


Arsene Wenger has moved to praise his attacking players Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud following their win over Southampton last night, before defending his players character following a tough few months.

Ian Wright, Thierry Henry, Emmanuel Adebayor and Robin van Persie are the only other Arsenal players to score 20 Premier League goals in a season, while the Chile forward has now scored more away from home this term - 14 - than any other top-flight player. While their final league position is dependent on the results of their rivals, Wenger said that his team must take it game by game.

Forget 'girl power' - Beth Mowins has the goods, period
That's still true today as ESPN has announced Beth Mowins will become the first woman to call a nationally televised NFL game. Mowins added: "This is an fantastic opportunity and I look forward to working with Rex and our entire ESPN team".

"We can not find the good clinical edge", said Puel. "Giroud came on and the second goal was very important for us, too". We concentrate on our games, we go game-by-game and we have to win all of them to give ourselves a chance. I think we managed in the second half to keep playing our game and waiting and being patient until the opportunity comes.

"We have to show it again, we know we have to play to win the games", he told reporters.

"I never questioned the character of my side", said Wenger. He's always a slow starter and gets stronger and stronger.

Arsenal are, of course, already in the Europa League next season; the FA Cup victor automatically gets a spot, so if the FA Cup victor has already qualified for the Champions League, that spot goes to the FA Cup runner up.

Wenger knows that even nine points might not be enough to guarantee a top-four finish, but he says his team have no option but to win the games in front of them. "I am always harsh with the one who doesn't play". "We'll know more in the next 48 hours". We'll need another strong performance at Stoke.

The only negative for Arsenal at St. Mary's Stadium was right wing back Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain limping off injured in the 36th minute.
