It is healthy to have competition (for places), we all want to see English players playing really well. I bounced back from the disappointment of 2010 with a very good season for Arsenal, and then last season I finished as top goalscorer, which was a massive personal achievement.”
Meantime, Everton manager Roberto Martinez told his team’s news that his team has played without fear this season. As a result, he believes that his team can overcome any opponent. “I don’t think we’ve played with fear at all this season. We beat Chelsea at home and to beat Manchester United away showed an incredible improvement to our performance from Manchester City (Everton’s only defeat of the season so far back in October).” He added “I felt when we went to City we didn’t have the right belief in our performance but I think we showed that at Old Trafford.”
But he tells news that Arsenal’s starting record this season is impressive. “Arsenal deserve a lot of respect because if you win 11 of your first 14 games you are the outstanding team in the competition. We are looking at ourselves to try to use this as a terrific test to see how quickly we can improve and challenge these sides. The Emirates Stadium is one of the hardest places to go and be you.” He added “Arsenal as an attacking team are as good as it gets and their movement and forward play requires maximum concentration in everything you do. From our point of view we are ready for that test. We are excited about challenging the best team in the league so far.” For live score results today click HERE.
