Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has hailed the Premiership as the strongest he's ever experienced.

Wenger said: "This season the Premier League is the strongest. I spoke with a 12-year-old boy in Paris recently and when I asked him which club he supported he said Arsenal. That did not happen when I was young.

"A Norwegian coach told me that a week before the Arsenal-Liverpool Champions League game, the Norway national team had a game. Some two million more people watched the Arsenal match!"
