Misfiring Gunners won't fluster Wenger

29 August 2015, 14:45

London - Arsene Wenger refuses to panic about Arsenal's spluttering start even though the Gunners boss admits his side aren't firing on all cylinders.

Wenger's men head to Newcastle on Saturday looking to win for just the second time in their first four Premier League matches.

A goalless draw against Liverpool on Monday left the north Londoners already lagging five points behind leaders Manchester City after a worrying repeat of the slow opening that eventually doomed their title challenge last season.

Wenger acknowledged his players aren't at their best yet, but he cautioned against writing them off too soon.

"We have not had the ideal start and we are conscious of that but we want to play 60 games in the season," Wenger said.

"We have played three games now and we have lost one that we should not have lost, but we have to be conscious that the season is not decided yet.

"Maybe we are not firing on all cylinders at the moment. Not everybody is ready physically. Certainly at the moment we want it so much at home that we're trying to force it a little bit."
