Arsene Wenger says Arsenal are working “day and night” to sign players but admits he is “not very confident” of making any additions to his squad before Tuesday’s deadline.
He said: “I would encourage more English coaches to go overseas because sometimes, especially when you have managed the national team, the best thing is to get out of the country for a while and then come back“.
“We made too many technical mistakes in the first half with loose passes and it gave them a few chances to counter-attack, but in the second half we improved on that”, Cech told Arsenal Player.
Wenger was forced into fielding an unfamiliar pair at centre-back as January recruit Gabrial partnered Callum Chambers in the absence of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny.
Asked if he supported the introduction of video technology: “Yes”. “I am convinced that it will come in and that the next step will be the offside rule because it’s maybe the easiest one to bring in. It’s the next step (on offside decisions)”, the 65-year-old Frenchman said.
The FA Cup holders have only amassed four points from their opening three Premier League matches, having lost 2-0 to West Ham United before narrowly beating Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park.
The Gunners have been linked with a host of players during the summer months as Wenger looks to guide his side to a genuine Premier League title challenge. “It’s normal after two or three games that you’re not at 100 percent”, he added.
Koscielny is nearly certain to miss their upcoming game with Newcastle on Saturday, but Mertesacker still has a chance of recovering in time from his sickness. We work very hard.
“It is important not to lose the big games and get something out of them, which we have managed to do”.
