Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger declared that there is very little to choose between teams at either end of the table, with the Gunners needing to be close to their best to beat any opposition they face in the hunt for silverware this season.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s clash with West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns, Wenger said, “I watched them against Man United and they looked a very well organised team which is absolutely – as always with Tony Pulis – fully committed. On top of that they are in a difficult situation a little bit in the Premier League and you expect what you always expect in the Premier League – a committed, physical, fast game and a game where we cannot afford to make any mistakes.”
Wenger added, “I would even say that you don’t even look at the table any more because you know what you get. The difference between the teams has narrowed and today it is more about how much can you be close to your best which will decide the result, more than the team you play against.”
Arsenal have a chance to go top of the league with a win away to West Brom in the 3pm kickoff on Saturday with Manchester City not playing host to Liverpool till later in the day.
