Arsene Wenger has pointed out the importance of the weekend clash against Leicester City, calling it a must win for his side.
Arsenal recorded their first win in five outings after a 2-0 win over Bournemouth earlier today saw them return to third on the table.
Wenger is aware of the importance the weekend clash with Leicester City is, with Tottenham also facing Manchester City.
“It is another must-win game,” Wenger told Sky Sports. “We play at home, we will have our fans behind us and of course we are playing now against one of the favourites for the Premier League.
“We of course look at their strong points to make a strong defensive performance against them. We have to prepare now.”
When asked who should be considered favourites to win the match, Wenger replied: “Favourites do not have great meaning.
“The only thing you can say is it is a big game, a very important one for the Premiership as well. It is a very big weekend for the Premiership because of the big games next week so let’s prepare and win it.
“Leicester have made a big impression in the last week after their results. They suddenly become the favourite in the Premier League and it makes our game big.”
