Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes that the Gunners have learned from last season's mistakes just in time for the new campaign.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has expressed his 'excitement' over the thought of the new Premier League season getting underway.

The Gunners, who have acquired Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla so far in the summer window, managed to secure Champions League football for the coming campaign but experienced an inconsistent period at the North London outfit last season.

"I find the situation very exciting," The Telegraph quotes Wenger as saying.

"I was very, very worried last year for a long part of the season and very anxious for a long time because we faced such a tough competition.

"I knew already in October that we could not afford to drop many points to be in the Champions League. I am excited because we have learned from last year, we have a new start and a new opportunity."

Meanwhile, reports have emerged claiming that the Gunners will lose striker Robin van Persie to Manchester United.
