Laurent Koscielny has nicked a phrase from the boss’s phrase book and praised the mental strength of this current Arsenal side.
Sitting top of the table, the Gunners have responded well to every set-back this year, and the French defender says they can feel as if something good is happening.
“Mentally we are stronger than ever,” he said. “We have won some games this season that we would never have won last season.
“It was always there, but more perhaps towards the end of the season. We can feel this season there is something special in the squad. We have all understood that we can achieve something together.”
Yet despite that special feeling, nobody is getting carried away in the Arsenal dressing room.
“It is down to us to stay there, stay focused and stay united, keep fighting for each other, stay consistent and humble like in the first six months, and maybe it will be our year and we will win it.”
Meanwhile, there have been suggestions that Swansea could look to solve their midfield injury crisis with a loan move for Emmanuel Frimpong.
The Ghanian is out of contract in the summer and with Swansea having a physio’s room that looks like a Boer War tent, Michael Laudrup could turn to Frimpong until the end of the season.
