Arsenal can handle trophy quest: Wenger

By AFP, London


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he is not concerned that a hectic period of fixtures could derail his team's bid for glory on multiple fronts this season.
The Frenchman rested a number of players, including Mesut Ozil, for Saturday's FA Cup third-round tie with Sunderland, which Arsenal won 3-1 courtesy of goals from Joel Campbell, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud.
Alexis Sanchez, Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck and Tomas Rosicky are all currently sidelined, but Wenger is confident that his squad has sufficient depth to cope.
"There is a little bit of concern," said Wenger, whose side are bidding to win the FA Cup for the third season in succession.
"But I believe that the next step is to get Rosicky back, Welbeck back, Sanchez back, Wilshere back and maybe we will get one player in (during the January transfer window).
