Arsenal boss Wenger: Gibbs can handle Monreal challenge

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is confident Kieran Gibbs is prepared to battle Nacho Monreal for a place at left-back.

Wenger feels Gibbs is ready to battle to make the position his.

"He is ready for the fight," Wenger told "I did it because I believe you never know with only one left back. You need two. And as well because both can play one in front of the other, so there's an opportunity to use them both in some games."
