The Gunners boss does not believe that the celebratory photos show any arrogance, but feels his players were rightfully happy to mark a big win away to Manchester City in their last game after so much criticism over their usual mentality in the matches against the other top sides.

Although Wenger himself does not use social media and is not a big fan of the technology, the Frenchman feels he has to respect that this generation chooses to express themselves this way and does not see any issue with the growing habit of selfies after wins.

Wenger insists his players know they have not won the league and that there is much more hard work ahead for them.

“The team were questioned on their capability to win an away game,” he said. “They did it and they had a right to be happy.

“But don’t worry, they know they haven’t won the league. We now have to show that we can be consistent at that level of focus. We have to show that solidarity in every single game.

“I don’t think it was a demonstration of arrogance. It was a demonstration of happiness. It is OK to express yourself. I don’t think it was disrespectful.

“I am not a big fan of all social media. I think you want to share happiness with your team-mates. But this generation have a different way to express it and I respect that.”
