Arsene Wenger expects the entertainment levels and the drama in the Premier League to increase during the second half of the season.
The Gunners boss was expecting the standard of performance to improve with some of the best managers in the world arriving in England to test themselves.
However, the Frenchman feels that this season has so far failed to live up to its billing and expects an improvement in the New Year.
“I assess it in two parts. We finished second in the league last season, it was Leicester’s year 2016 overall and for us it was disappointing not to win the league,” Wenger told a press conference on Friday.
“After that the second part of the year we have moved our level up but we are in the middle of the championship now.

“It was a very promising championship with the best managers in the world competing and it promises to be an exceptional year.
“But until now disappointing on all levels because the Premier League has not produced the games that are remembered but in the second part I expect the level and spectacularity of the games will go up and we have a responsibility to do that.”
