Wenger predicts 'open' game against Manchester City

Arsene Wenger believes a "draw is not good enough" for either Arsenal or Manchester City when the sides meet on Sunday.

The Arsenal manager also reveals he is "a bit more optimistic" regarding Theo Walcott signing a new contract at the Emirates Stadium and states the club will seek to bring in "exceptional" players during the January transfer window, though admits they are yet to identify any suitable targets.

Reigning Premier League champions City have gone 27 league matches without a win at Arsenal and failed to score on their last five league visits - their last goal coming courtesy of DaMarcus Beasley during a 3-1 defeat in April 2007.
