Wenger admits Arsenal must get physical

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger wants his team to be more physical.

Wenger believes while Arsenal's new generation have taken their game to another level in terms of finesse, an added edge would not go a miss.

"Maybe we have to go back a little bit, not less technical but a bit more physical and aggressive," said Wenger.

"I think that when [referees] see Arsenal on the sheet, they say "oh fantastic" [to referee them].

"This side are physical players, but we have to restructure the balance of the team a little bit.

"The players have the character to do it. The [likes of] [Jack] Wilshere are technical players, but they are also physical players."
