Arsenal made hard work of beating the Championship side Reading on Saturday, but Arsene Wenger was proud that his team kept their heads and went on to secure a place in the FA Cup Final for the second time in two years.
Arsenal are now aiming for their TENTH win in a row when they take on the Champions-elect Chelsea at the Emirates next week, and Wenger is looking forward to his team continuing the brilliant run against Mourinho’s men in Blue.
“We struggled for a while,” Le Prof said on Arsenal.com. “We have learned from our hiccups and we have matured a little bit.
“When we had difficult moments against Reading the team kept going. We don’t feel sorry for ourselves. We just kept our gameplan.
“We have to show that now on a consistent level and we have the opportunity to do that against Chelsea next Sunday. We were back against the wall and responded well. The team has great spirit and togetherness and that helps.
“Let’s finish this season well. We have six games, a big game next weekend, and I believe we have the spirit, which is encouraged by the results. That’s what we have to produce until the end.”
Surely the biggest pointer to our confidence for next years title is for Wenger to get his first ever win against Mourinho. If we can manage that as well as go on to finish second and retain th FA Cup, then I for one will consider this a successful season. Do you?
