Cape Town - Arsène Wenger says Arsenal are a much stronger side than they were at the start of the season.

The Gunners faced a challenging opening to the campaign but have hit form since the turn of the year, winning 14 of their last 16 games in all competitions.

Arsenal head into the international break in third place after beating Newcastle on Saturday and Wenger had plenty of praise for his side.

“[I am pleased with] the spirit of the team and the mental quality of the players,” the manager told Arsenal Player.

“They are outstanding guys and it’s a pleasure to see how they behave and a credit to the club as well to see that quality on the behavioural front and the desire to do well.

“I was very pleased with the resilience because it shows qualities that are important such as solidarity, the fact that we refuse to give in and on that front I think we did very well.

“We’re a stronger team today than we were in September and that’s down to the focus of the whole club, of the whole staff and the quality of work the whole staff puts in. Let’s hope we can go from strength to strength now until the end of the season.”
