Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal can secure a place in the top-four this season and says that the Gunners could be the Premier League’s "surprise package" after the club "bought well" during this summer transfer window.
Arsenal bought several players during the transfer window including the transfer deadline day signing Thomas Partey.
Asked whether he had any advice for Arteta in a Q&A with The Guardian
, Wenger replied: "To continue to have a grip on the team, as he has at the moment, and to go to the end of his beliefs. ‘I think there is a good team spirit and they have a good chance to do well.
"I believe it will not be very difficult to improve on the number of points they got last season.
"But I’m convinced Arsenal can be in the top four, if not more. Why not more?
"They can be the surprise package for me this year: they bought well, they strengthened the defence well. And they kept the players who were already there. In my last year I bought [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang, they kept him.
"They have every ingredient and no real weakness."
