Wenger will stick with attacking principles for City clash


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists he will not comprise the team's attacking approach when they host Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

The London club have been on a woeful run of form, losing six of their last nine games, and have dropped out of the top four on the league table and been dumped out of the Champions League.

The poor results have led to speculation about Wenger's future at the club with his contract expiring at the end of the season and fans voicing the anger from the stands.

The 67-year-old, who has been in charge of the Gunners for more than 20 years, has not revealed anything about his future but says he has made a decision.

In a bid to get out of the rut, the Frenchman says the team will be sticking to what they know best against a strong City side.

Wenger told Sky Sports: "We have 11 games to go in the Premier League and now you cannot change completely the structure of the team.

"The same players have won games and the same players have lost games. I have tried many changes in the last five or six games and it does not always come off.

"I have to come back to the strength of the team as much as I can. That is basically our attacking potential and we also have to focus on our togetherness and our desire to prepare our future.

"No matter how you play you have to be efficient with the way you play. I don't think it's the way you play it's how well you play the way you play."
