Wenger: Gunners are ready

20 February 2007 03:33
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has warned his side's opponents that the Gunners are peaking at precisely the right point of the season. Arsenal resume their Champions League campaign with a trip to PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday ahead of a Carling Cup final showdown with Chelsea on Sunday. Wenger's side are still battling on a third front in the FA Cup and the Frenchman believes the strength in depth he has at his disposal will help guide his through a period of fixture congestion. "I feel that since December the team has taken off," he said. "The understanding within the squad is very good, there is a high spirit and we are ready for a big challenge. "Against PSV, who have dominated Dutch football for a while now, you know you will get a tough game. "We will try to play our game and score goals." Meanwhile, Wenger has confirmed that Justin Hoyte will miss the trip to Holland with a slight hamstring strain but the full-back is expected to be fit to face Chelsea in Cardiff at the weekend.
