We are working hard to get new players – Wenger speaks after Liverpool defeat

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has said that the club is working very hard, to bring in one or two new players.
The Gunners opened their 2016/2017 campaign, with a 4-3 loss to Liverpool at the Emirates on Sunday.

Wenger was without centre-halves Gabriel Paulista, Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker and had to make do with Calum Chambers and Rob Holding.

“Yes we need some players back and of course I’ve said many times before we are working very hard still to get one or two more players in,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’s always desperate because there’s not much time left but I don’t know what you’d call desperate, it has to make sense and be quality.

“We’ve done that [spent big] before, but it’s about identifying the players and the availability of the players.”

The team was booed off by the home supporters after the game and Wenger was quick to downplay their frustration.

“That’s part of it and of course that’s not pleasant but we have shown in the past we have the mental strength to deal with that and bounce back,” he added.

“At 4-1 down at home it’s difficult with so many young players. At the back we lack a bit of maturity but you know that before we go into the game.

“We have to analyse but not panic. I’m always under pressure because I want to win every single game and that’s part of the game.”
