Arsenal's Arsene Wenger shrugs off Per Mertesacker training concerns

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said his side lacked creativity in their 2-1 comeback win in the Champions League against Anderlecht.

LONDON -- Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists his team do not need to step up their training regime despite Per Mertesacker suggesting extra work may be needed to resolve the Gunners' defensive difficulties this season.

Walcott has not played for Arsenal since January's FA Cup third-round tie against Tottenham, with his appearance in an under-21 game last week the latest step in his recovery programme.

Per Mertesacker admits Arsenal below best after Anderlecht scare

The ESPN FC team praise Arsenal's character for coming back late against a determined Anderlecht side.

Arsenal vice-captain Per Mertesacker said the Gunners were well below their best after two late goals secured three Champions League points against Anderlecht in Brussels on Tuesday.

The Londoners had trailed to Andy Najar's header, but goals from Kieran Gibbs and Lukas Podolski turned the game around in its final moments and secured a 2-1 win.

German World Cup-winner Mertesacker said the win was a welcome boost after a run of uncertain performances by the Gunners, who needed another late goal to...
