Wenger: 'The spirit in the side is absolutely fantastic'

He said:

"What I have learned is that the team loves to play together. It has also shown that the spirit in the side is absolutely fantastic.

"This victory - we do not class it as a trophy - builds up the belief of the team, which was needed because we did not have the greatest season last season confidence wise. It shows we can do well."

Belief and spirit are all pre-requisites of course, but so is experience - Whilst the team played well over the weekend, I still feel that some older heads are required to balance out the exuberance of the young contingent. We'll just have to see if Wenger feels the same way.
