Wenger not concerned by Arsenal`s TV critics
London: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he does not mind that some television pundits have written off his side`s chances of going the distance in this season`s Premier League title race.
The London club lead the English top flight by four points after 13 matches, as they bid to end a nine-year wait for the league crown.
Former Liverpool defender Alan Hansen and former Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer, both pundits on BBC`s `Match of the Day` highlights programme, have claimed that Arsenal will struggle to maintain their early-season form.
However, while Wenger admits that he occasionally watches the programme, he says that the opinions expressed on it do not necessarily carry weight.
"Sometimes I watch it, sometimes not," the Frenchman said, ahead of his side`s home game with 10th-placed Hull City later on Wednesday.
"I have enough experience to analyse what we do and how well we play. I don`t need someone else to tell me. I`m not upset by that at all.
"I take anything from anybody. I just try to analyse whether he has a point or not. Sometimes it`s just someone saying their opinion without an argument on something that makes sense."
