Wenger unhappy with busy Arsenal schedule

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger fears their title push could be affected by a busy December schedule.

The Gunners host Everton on Sunday, then face Napoli in Italy three days later before travelling to Manchester City for a lunchtime kick-off the following Saturday.

Wenger said: "We have a very heavy schedule which is why I had to rest some players today and rotate.

"We play Everton on Sunday with little distance between Everton and Napoli. Then Man City on Saturday morning. For us it's a very heavy schedule.

"It's not unfair or fair - (there's) just no co-ordination between the television choices. You could say we could have played on Saturday against Everton and Sunday or Monday against Man City.

"It looks strange you play on Saturday morning and then 10 days later on Monday night against Chelsea."
