Arsene Wenger singles out Arsenal star for praise in win over Swansea

Arsene Wenger singles out Arsenal star for praise in win over Swansea”

Arsene Wenger celebrated his 800th English Premier League game in charge of Arsenal with a 2-1 comeback victory over Swansea on Saturday.

Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac are recalled in the wing-back positions while Aaron Ramsey starts alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield with Jack Wilshere dropping to the bench.

"I believe that since he arrived he has convinced everybody that he was a good signing", Wenger said.

"Yes I have experience but there are two ways: you ignore your age and you live like you live forever, or you think ok - I think I am born for competition".

Speaking after the game, Wenger said: "Kolasinac was decisive today because he scored and made an assist".

The Gunners beat Swansea 2-1 after coming from behind following a Sam Clucas goal for the visitors midway through the first half. "And he did that very well".

Speaking about the Bosnian's injury, Wenger told Arsenal's official website: "It's a hip problem, a tight muscle in his hip". How long will he be out?

"At half-time, I could be anxious because we were 1-0 down and I knew that Swansea had conceded only one away goal the whole season", Wenger said.

"Today the performance was better and I think we possibly deserved more than we got".

Wenger also congratulated England's Under-17 team for their World Cup final win over Spain, as they joined the country's Under-20 team as world champions.

"Somebody said 500 years ago the target was to be a saint for people". "It shows as well that since they have restructured the academy work and dedicated a lot of work to that, you have the results".

"Unfortunately, we didn't get that opportunity at the end", he said.
