Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has reiterated his desire for his team to have a good start if they are to realise their Premier League ambitions this term.
“I’m ready for a fight and motivated to start well,” he said. “One of our targets is to start strong and we had good preparation, so that should give us confidence.
“Last season after 12 games we were 15 points behind Chelsea and in the next 26 we took 58 points and Chelsea 55, so that means we missed our start of the season last year.
“Let’s try to start strong this season. I believe we have the needed ingredients but we have a tricky start – two derbies and Liverpool in the first three games.
“Our target is very high, we want to fight for the Premier League.
“That’s our ambition – to win the Premier League. But we have to sustain that with performance and fighting spirit in every game.”
