But Wenger, speaking ahead of the Gunners' visit to Everton on Sunday, effectively pointed to his players' medals as proof of their quality and character. "The only response we have to give is on the pitch and not listen too much to what people say," he said. Neither issue, he insisted, would affect his plans for the visit to Goodison Park, when Arsenal can pile extra pressure on under-fire Everton manager Ronald Koeman. "I still believe in the players, and I still believe in the signings that we made in the summer," Koeman said.
