Wenger Praises Martinez

Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has praised Everton boss Roberto Martinez ahead of their English Premier League clash on Sunday.

Arsenal currently top the league standings with 34 points from 14 league games while Everton occupy fifth place with 27 points.

Everton have been impressive in the 2013/14 season and have only lost one match thus far into the league season, which is the least of all the Premiership teams.

“Martinez has done remarkably well because they had difficult games,” said Wenger.

“They have played many of the big teams in the league and overall are in a very strong position in the league.”

Everton come into the game fresh off a midweek 1-0 win over Manchester united and Wenger says that has served as a warning for his side.

“They have just come out of a win against Manchester United,” added Wenger.

“We are lucky this season a little bit, because there is always a big warning before we play these teams they have exceptional results. That keeps us on our toes. We know for us it is a big game.

“I don't think that (complacency) is a danger because we are hungry and we want to win.

“We have just put a few results together that should make us and will make us more ambitious, but as well conscious that in every single game you need to put a top level performance in.

“It is a continuity thing as well because since the beginning of 2013 we have been quite consistent in our results, but now we have a big week in front of us starting with Everton and we have to show we have the hunger and the quality to do it.”
