No slowdown at Emirates as Arsenal cruise – Wenger reacts

Arsenal 2-0 Hull City

This might Arsenal’s season as the Gunners wrapped another win  and maitain their lead on top of EPL. Bendtner who plays only minues gave the spark in the first minutes of the game.

Coach Wenger reacts:

on the performance…
We had a good night because we had a good control of the game. We had some great technical quality and keep a clean sheet. We rotated quite a bit as well. We couldn’t take all the chances we created but overall it was a very convincing performance.

on Bendtner’s future…
At the moment we are not as far as that. He has the stature, he has good technical quality, he has quite good pace. Look, we had him as a boy of 15 or 16 and I made him sign a long contract twice so that means I always believed in his qualities.

on Man United being 12 points behind…
No [I won’t rule them out of the title race]. It’s still early. It is a surprising defeat [to Everton] but it is still early. We have seen that before, 12 points, only on us. We have just to keep winning to have a chance, and not worry too much about the others.

on a big week ahead…
We have a very heavy schedule, that’s why as well I had to rest some players today and to rotate. Now we play Everton on Sunday, there is little distance between Everton and [the Napoli game]. We play Wednesday night in Naples and Saturday morning at Man City, so for us it is a very very heavy schedule.

on the schedule…
It’s not fair or unfair, it is just no co-ordination between the television choices because you would say that we could have played on Saturday against Everton and we could play Sunday or Monday against Man City. It looks strange that we play Saturday morning and our next game after that is Monday night against Chelsea nine days later. Especially when there is little time between a decisive Champions League game on Wednesday night and Saturday 12.45pm.
