Ahead of Arsenal vs Man City, Wenger says Attack is the Best form of Defence

When you want to play football, you have to accept the risk and you have to play. If you want to play football, when you walk out on the pitch you have to accept the gamble and the risk. It is part of the game

Arsenal travel to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday 5th.

The host currently top the table with some frightening statistics, scoring 3.5 goals per match, which almost double that of Arsenal’s 1.9. Manchester City has also conceded the 2nd fewest goals (6), only Man United (4) have conceded fewer goals than City.

Arsene Wenger addresses the media ahead of the game and insists Arsenal will not be packing the bus but will, in fact, be attack minded.

“When we go there, we want to defend well but you cannot go there and only be focused on just defending. We want as well to play, have the ball and create dangerous situations. The best way to defend sometimes is to attack.

“When you want to play football, you have to accept the risk and you have to play. If you want to play football, when you walk out on the pitch you have to accept the gamble and the risk. It is part of the game.

“After, you have to rate the risk. Is it a bigger risk only to defend than to attack if a team is very strong in attack? Maybe it is a bigger risk only to defend.”
