Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists there'll be no man-marking job for Tottenham star Gareth Bale.

Wenger has not devised a ploy to shackle him, despite coming under fire for his recent tactics.

Wenger said: “We don’t plan for anybody. It is always the same — focus on our strengths and forget about your opponent.

“There is nobody special that you least like to face. All players have different qualities.

“What is important when you’re a manager is that you are focused — that hasn’t changed over the last 15 years.

“You always make sure your team is at its best, prepares well and focuses on playing the football we love.”
