Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger accuses Premier League of 'conspiring' against his side.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has launched a scathing attack on the Premier League, accusing them of conspiring against his side.

Wenger has also stated that he feels the Gunners are getting a tougher run of games than their rivals and has blasted the role of TV companies in determining the fixture list.

"The Premier League has to make sure there's a bit of fairness in the schedules. I don't believe the Premier League has played a very fair role in the distribution of the fixtures," Wenger told The Mirror.

"They are sold to television and television is influenced by some clubs to choose the fixtures. And some clubs get advantaged by television, if it's Sky or ESPN, because they have an influence there from the clubs directly. That's what is wrong."

Arsenal resume domestic duties against Swansea on Sunday afternoon.
