Wenger: Arsenal fans must continue to believe

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has called on Gunners fans to keep their faith in his vision for the club. In the wake of another below-par display against one of their direct title rivals, Manchester United, some supporters groups have started to question whether Wenger's unwavering belief in developing the promise of youth rather than spending big will ever yield the silverware they crave.

"I do not understand that too much, because we are six points off the leader, with 14 games to go, we are in a strong position, and we are qualified in the Champions League," said the Arsenal manager when reflecting on the voices of discontent among the Gunners faithful.

"We are in a very healthy financial situation, we have a very young team compared to all the others.

"You can always be pessimistic, or you can always be optimistic - but if you analyse our situation realistically, you have many reasons to be optimistic.

"Don't forget the other clubs in England are big as well. They invest more money than we do, and we are still there."
