Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement does leave a Premier League void.

But Wenger is relishing the opportunity to lock horns with some new rivals in this year's title race.

He said: "The Premier League will continue but it has lost a huge personality with the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.

"That creates a void but Manchester United have taken a manager a manager who has experience in the Premier League and David Moyes will certainly do a good job.

"United have lost a big personality but they have kept the team together so that gives them the stability to get through the upheaval."
