Wenger is expecting a tough game against bottom-placed Aston Villa.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is expecting a tough game when his side play Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Gunners are full of confidence and are fresh from their 3-0 win over Olympiacos in the Champions League, a win that saw them qualify for the next round of Europe’s elite competition.

“It will be a tough game at Villa and that is why I say it is important we focus straight away on the Premier League after Wednesday night and thatwe recover physically and mentally," he said, reports arsenal.com. "We have showed we have the maturity to focus on both competitions.

“We have, 16 years on the trot, come out of the group stage in the Champions League and it reinforces me in the belief I have in the group. I always thought this group could go far.

"They have the attitude and the spirit. But as well you have to show that on the pitch you have the talent to do what you think your players can do.”
