Wenger Confident After Qualification

ARSÈNE Wenger believes Wednesday Champions League victory over Celtic will fill his side full of confidence before they face Manchester United tomorrow.

A somewhat controversial penalty from Eduardo set up the win that allowed Arsenal to progress to the group stages of the competition even though the club were missing their injured captain, Cesc Fábregas — a doubt for the trip to Old Trafford. Further goals from Emmanuel Eboué and substitute Andrey Arshavin sealed the 5-1 aggregate score.
Arsenal have now won all of their four matches so far this season and Wenger believes that makes “perfect” preparation for this weekend’s clash with the league champions.
“I am happy to go to Old Trafford because it is the first big, big test,” he said. “You want always to have a high level of confidence when you go to Old Trafford; we have that at the moment.
“We are now in the top, top league in Europe, with all the big names. Our team against Celtic was an average age of 23,9 years. That means, if we can get out of the group stage, then in six months we can be even stronger.
“That is what we want to focus on, to continue to improve our team play, the speed of our game and show that we have made big improvements come Saturday at 5.15pm.
“For us it is most important to recover physically because Manchester United did not play during the week,” he added. — The Guardian.
