Wenger: You can´t win with kids anymore

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has suggested that Premier League clubs can no longer field inexperienced players against Championship opposition in the FA Cup and expect to progress.

The Frenchman has overseen back-to-back FA Cup trophies but says he will name a team of senior players for their fourth round encounter with Burnley.

Arsenal fielded a strong side in their 3-1 third round win over fellow Premier League club Sunderland and Wenger said he would be doing the same against his Championship opposition on Saturday.

Arsenal were knocked out of the League Cup in October, exiting the competition after a 3-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

Following last weekend’s defeat to defending league champions Chelsea, Wenger is eager to avoid another reverse.

“I will play quite an experienced team,” he told a press conference.

“First of all, we lost last Sunday against Chelsea and it is important not to drop our confidence level too much.

“We have learnt something this season, we went to Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup and got quite a severe defeat. We have to show we have learnt from that. 

“Second, we want to do well in the FA Cup and you don’t want to miss an opportunity when you play at home against a Championship team and you don’t win with kids any more unfortunately against the Championship teams. That’s it.”

    Wenger will mess it up again.
    He has neither the insight nor the capability to win the league.
    He is just an old stubborn man who can keep things going on an on for years but never over achieve.
    To those who believes in him, it is time to have a reality check. Wnger went on the market to get a cover for Lecoq, because it seemed we needed to get maximum points at the top of the league. What did he do with Elneny? Kept him on the bench, which makes to think that it was fake buy.
    Let me explain, Elneny was never supposed to fill in the gap left by Le coq, but only a player for the yearly project Wenger (one for the future)
    So did it matter to Wenger to have lost those precious points? Nope.
    He is not interested in winning the league. It is the money that is important, the mighty Wenger has this season also made a massive profit and developing another pearl in Elneny. That is also why he is called le prof, he discovers, train and make stars, but does not win the league.
    So do not expect the lazy horse to achieve the unexpected, he has been for years fooling the fans just as he bought Elneny to calm down the AOB and reinforce the confidence of the AKB.
    In fact he could have brought in a power-house if he wanted to win the league.
    Just as someone said, for Arsenal to win the league, we need to have the best of luck possible, no more injured players, the support of all EPL referees, God’s support, and the unfaltering willpower of Sanchez, Ozil and Ramsey united. Plus the self downfall of City and Leicester.
    Only then shall we win the league.
    Good luck
