Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says the club is in "good shape" despite their disastrous start to the Premier League season.

The Gunners sit bottom of the Premier League without a point or a goal following defeats to Brentford, Chelsea and Manchester City so far this season.

Manager Mikel Arteta has struggled with Covid issues meaning he has missed key players for each defeat, but things are looking worrying for the Spaniard - while the board are also under growing pressure after spending £142m.

However, club legend Wenger says his beloved Arsenal are in "good shape" despite their woes.

"Today the club is in good shape," Wenger told Bild. "They had two tough games, the team has potential and I hope they can come back."

The Frenchman, how is now chief of global football development with Fifa, was even quizzed about a return to the manager's seat in north London should Arteta be given the sack.

"I'm 71," said Wenger, who still lives in London. "I've given this club the best years of my life. At the moment I'm just a fan."
