Arsene Wenger is urging Arsenal fans to forget lack of new arrivals

By Staff Reporter

Arsene Wenger has urged Arsenal fans to focus on getting behind the current players and not why the club failed to sign a replacement for injured forward Danny Welbeck.

England forward Welbeck is expected to be out until Christmas after he underwent surgery on a knee problem which caused him to miss the end of last season.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow's Premier League match against Stoke, Wenger said: "To support the club and support the team is to stand behind the players.

"Support is believing in the players in the squad and this is a good opportunity to do that.

"I am confident I have enough cover and enough quality. We have Alexis (Sanchez), we have (Olivier) Giroud, we have (Theo) Walcott. We can score goals, I am not worried about that."

Wenger rebuffed suggestions he should have just raided the Emirates Stadium bank vault regardless.

"It's a decision. Do you buy because he strengthens the squad or not? The solutions were not convincing," he said.
