Wenger - ADUG is The Biggest Threat

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that he is expecting a tough battle for the Champions League places in the Premiership this season, with Manchester City the team he believes are the most capable of breaking into the top four, due to the new found spending power under owner’s the ADUG.
The Gunners have never finished outside the top four under the guidance of Wenger, but the Frenchman has picked out City, along with North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and FA Cup holders Portsmouth to mount a challenge to his squad at the Emirates Stadium this season, with Wenger claiming that City have an advantage because of the money they can offer to attract the top stars of the world.

Wenger told The Sun: “This year other surprise teams could come into it like Manchester City or Tottenham or Portsmouth. It is certainly very interesting and very tight.

“Manchester City, have an advantage because they do pay a lot of money.

“This year, for the first time, the January transfer window opens when we will have only played 19 games.

“I have played seasons here when there were 24 games before then - the second part of the season is longer now.

“Teams can get that little bit more balance by buying players in the transfer window.”
