Arsene Wenger to give players some extra time off this week

Arsene Wenger will give his players some extra rest this week in preparation for Saturdays game against Sunderland

The Gunners manager will be looking for his players to recharge their batteries before the game against Sam Allardyche’s side, and before the next Premier League fixture with Liverpool at Anfield on January 13th.

“Of course I will give them a rest,” he said. “I will give them a couple of days, an extra rest, but you never know what shape they come back in. It depends what you do when you have a rest.

“You can come back more tired!”

It seems unlikely that any of the Arsenal players will do anything to jeopardise their fitness, with Wenger extolling the virtues of experience in his current squad.

“I think we are more experienced than the teams I had when I moved into the stadium here,” he said.

“On our day we could play everybody off the park and when you had to dig deep you experience it was a bit more difficult. It was different.”
