Accrington Stanley striker Francis Jeffers has jumped to the defence of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

Jeffers played for the Gunners under the Frenchman and is aware of the pressure the manager is under.

Jeffers told the London Evening Standard: “He is still doing a magnificent job. When I went to Arsenal, there were World Cup winners and a lot of experience: David Seaman, Tony Adams, Lee Dixon, Ray Parlour, Martin Keown were regulars and they were 30 plus. It is a totally different side now, a lot more youth.”
