ข่าวดิบ: เวนเกอร์หวังเริ่มต้นแรง แซงทุกผู้ทุกคน!!


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is hoping his side can make a positive start to the campaign and build on last season.

The Gunners finished third in the Premier League table last term, 11 points behind winnersChelsea, and once more qualified for theUEFA Champions League.

They are currently training in Austria and beat Sturm Graz 3-0 in their second pre-season game on Wednesday.

Arsenal’s first game of the season is a tough trip to Anfield to face Liverpool, but Wenger is targeting a positive start and progression from last year.

“The aim is to continue to progress as we have been doing,” Wenger told Arsenal’s official magazine.

“We were very close last year – closer than the previous season – so we are heading in the right way. We hope we can continue that this season.

“It is important to start well, start strongly and get into a good position early on and to try to maintain the level.”

The Gunners have not won the league since 2004 and despite playing some excellent football, have suffered a drought of trophies in recent years.

However, centre-half Thomas Vermaelen, who will be partnered by new signing Laurent Koscielny next season, is also confident of a successful campaign.

“We have a good young group who are very aggressive and want to improve,” he remarked.

“I think people will always say we can’t compete – it is not the first time, but we have to do what we always do which is work hard and play our own game, then we can compete.

“I hope we can compete for the title this year and I am convinced we will.”
