Vindicated in some respects with his decision to stay on at Arsenal in the midst of a difficult season, Arsene Wenger reiterated his desire to be the Gunners' boss going forward as well.

Speaking to the press after Masterminding an excellent 2-1 win over Premier League champions Chelsea in the FA Cup on Sunday, Wenger said, "I just want to do well for this club. Apart from that, after that it’s down to the board members to decide if I’m the right man to take this club further, and for me to decide whether I am the right man to take this club further. That’s it. It’s not about popularity, it’s about competence."

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wore a disappointed look as he attempted to explain the Gunnners' 2-1 loss at home to Watford, a result that puts Arsenal's title aspirations in jeopardy as they trail Chelsea by 9 points heading into their clash at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking about what went wrong for Arsenal today, Wenger said, "It was obvious we lost duels and were not sharp enough. It looked more mentally that we were not ready for the challenges. We were unlucky for the first goal which was deflected after a soft free-kick. It took us a while to get into the game, it was all us in the second half and unlucky not to get something from the game.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was effusive in his praise for German superstar Mesut Ozil after the 28 year old playmaker followed up his hat-trick against Ludogorets in the Champions League by also grabbing an 88th minute match winner in Bulgaria.

Wenger said about Ozil after the game, "The great players make the right decisions in the game situations they face. They always make the optimal solution. To me it didn’t look for a while like the optimal solution, but when the ball was in the net I thought it was! You wanted him to take maybe his chance earlier but at the end he had enough skill to prove that he was right."

Arsenal will kick off the 10th round of Premier League fixtures this weekend at the Stadium of Light, taking on a struggling Sunderland side at the wrong end of the Premier League table.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger though isn't taking his opponents at all lightly and is expecting a tough game as always against this Saturday's opposition. Looking ahead to the game, Wenger said, "They are a team who are in a bad position at the moment, but it’s early in the season. It’s very tight at the top and very tight at the bottom as well, so there are no differences anywhere."

English Football Association chief executive Martin Glenn said Gareth Southgate, current interim coach of the Three Lions, is a credible candidate to assume the position full time, this despite rumours that the England FA are considering offering the job to Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger when his current contract with the Gunners expires this summer.

Southgate, 46, was named interim coach last September, after the English Football Association dismissed Sam Allardyce. In principle, the FA named Southgate as coach for four games against Malta, Slovenia, Scotland and Spain, while carrying out the search for a new tenant. However, according to Glenn, the English coach could finally be chosen even if he loses the next two games against Scotland on November 11 and Spain on November 15.

With 4 goals in his last 2 games, including a first ever career hat-trick in the win against Ludogorets in the Champions League in midweek, it is unsurprising that Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger is being quizzed about what has changed in the playmaker's approach that is seeing him arriving in the box at the right time to put the ball away.

Wenger was happy to discuss Ozil's routine in training in his press conference today ahead of Arsenal's clash with Middlesbrough at the weekend, and the Gunners' boss said, "He works quite well on finishing in training. I believe that every player gets in a habit of having a vision of his game, and sometimes he doesn’t get out of the boundaries he has fixed himself. He experienced his game as a provider and slowly I think he’s getting the taste to think ‘oh, maybe I can finish as well’."

A first ever career hat-trick from Mesut Ozil was just one of the highlights of a clinical Arsenal performance, which included some very good individual goals as well.
