Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is happier with the international programme.

Wenger believes the positive impact of allowing international fixtures to be played on Fridays and Tuesdays is significant for his preparations.

“It is a big comfort for us, first of all to give the players a breather,” the Frenchman told arsenal.com. “Yesterday they could stay with their families and they are not under mental pressure.

“Sometimes, [it is difficult] to focus when the time is a bit short. We have four days. It’s interesting for all the clubs. I think it’s a big improvement for us.

“Even the little knocks, you have a chance to get the players back and fit for the next game.”
