Arsene Wenger: "I had an impact on the season, because at some stage the players came to see me and said, 'What's going on boss? Where do you go?' I created, with me not deciding, a lack of clarity in the dressing room and there is nothing worse than that in the dressing room. When you are not completely in or the players feel you are not completely in, it is difficult to tell them we go [out to win]. At some stage, I had to tell them, "Look guys, I am with you, but we have to win games'."
Craig Shakespeare: "The Premier League is the most competitive league in the world and Arsenal are one of the best clubs in it, year after year they've shown their consistency. We haven't been able to beat them yet but there's always a first time and it would be nice to think it would be Friday night. The players are champing at the bit to get started. It will be difficult, with the quality of their players, their fan base and the money that they can spend, but that's the Premier League."
