Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he has confidence, and can rely on each and every member of his playing squad. 

Wenger is currently mulling over which sides to pick for first the F.A Cup game at home to Liverpool on Sunday, before Wednesday’s match against Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the Champions League. 

It has been a tough week for the Gunners boss, as Arsenal endured a hammering away at Liverpool, losing the game 5-1, before drawing 0-0 at home to Manchester United on Wednesday Evening. 

Speaking to the official Arsenal website, Wenger stated….

“I will play a team [against Liverpool] with a good opportunity, a good chance to qualify,” he said. “Will I rest one player, or two or three, I don’t know yet. Certainly we will have just have one focus, which is to win the game.

He went onto say. 

“We have rotated quite well, if you look at the number of players we have used. I have the same level of confidence in every player.

“For example, I rate Jenkinson but Sagna has a bit more experience so when we go in a game with more pressure I give the advantage sometimes to the experienced [player].

“But I have the same level of confidence in every player in my squad. I have a short squad but a very level squad.” 

Long serving midfielder Mathieu Flamini will return to the squad for Sunday’s Cup game, something Wenger is rather happy about. 

“We have rotated quite well, if you look at the number of players we have used. I have the same level of confidence in every player.

“For example, I rate Jenkinson but Sagna has a bit more experience so when we go in a game with more pressure I give the advantage sometimes to the experienced [player].

“But I have the same level of confidence in every player in my squad. I have a short squad but a very level squad.” 

However Santi Cazorla will miss the fixture after contracting a virus. 

The game is televised live on BT Sport 1
