Wenger gave Gunners belief

23 Jan 2007 - 08:35:58

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger predicted the Gunners would come from behind to defeat Manchester United at the weekend according to midfielder Mathieu Flamini.

Wenger rallied his troops who were trailing 1-0 to a Wayne Rooney goal at half-time at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, with the observation that United struggle to close out games effectively.

And the Frenchman's predictions proved correct as Arsenal secured the points courtesy of late strikes from Robin van Persie and Thierry Henry.

"The manager told us at half-time we would crack United," Flamini told The Sun.

"He told us 'they are no longer the same team after 70 minutes'.

"He asked us to remain strong and concentrated because United were going to let go physically in the last 20 minutes. And once again the manager was right."
