It has been a testing few weeks for Arsene Wenger, who has failed to retain key players such as Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, while the players that have remained are yet to register a victory in the Premier League.

Many people are suggesting it could be time for Wenger to stand down from his role as Arsenal manager, although the Gunners chairman has poured cold water on this idea and declared that the Frenchman is still the ideal man for the job.

“It’s complete and utter rubbish and absolute nonsense. I think he is happy enough and we are happy enough,” Peter Hill-Wood told the Daily Star.

“We have brought some new players in and although I don’t know that much about many of them I think, generally speaking, they are going to improve the squad.”

Mikel Arteta and Per Mertesacker are both expected to make their debuts against Swansea on Saturday, with Wenger looking for Arsenal to get their season going in the Premier League after that 8-2 drubbing at Old Trafford.

The Swans arrive at the Emirates without having scored a goal although they play a similar style of football to the Gunners and will fancy their chances of getting a result.
