Arsene Wenger on today's game and next week's Premier League opener


Manager Arsene Wenger is confident Arsenal can beat Chelsea in today's FA Community Shield match at Wembley.

After an impressive pre-season campaign, the Gunners take on Jose Mourinho's men hoping to retain the trophy they won last year after easing past Manchester City by 3-0.

And the Frenchman says his players are full of confidence ahead of a tricky start to the season.

"The expectations are very high and that is understandable because you cannot win the FA Cup and finish third in the league and then say 'Look, next year we want to do nothing,'" Wenger said.

"People expect a lot from us and it is the first time for a long time we have all had confidence in our environment.

"Before, we always lost big players and then you would quickly question us. The ingredients are there but I am long enough in the job to know we have to prove that with points.

"So I am confident because we have played well, but I am realistic as well. You know when the competition starts it's a different game and you have to transform your performance into points.

"We have a tricky start with West Ham and Crystal Palace. But I believe we know what we want to do, we know how we want to play and we had a good end to last season.

"We also have a good stability to our squad. So there are positive ingredients there. We have no injuries at the moment, touch wood, so there is no reason why we should be panicking at the moment."
