Arsene Wenger was keen to look ahead as his 20th anniversary as Arsenal manager was toasted ahead of their Premier League trip to Burnley tomorrow.

The 66-year-old reaches a landmark two decades in charge of the Gunners today and chairman Sir Chips Keswick presented the Frenchman with a crystal vase to mark the occasion ahead of his weekly press conference.

But Wenger was in no mood for reminiscing and is still hungry for success as his side look to continue their strong start to the season with a win at Turf Moor.

"I think it is a privilege for me but I do not look back," he said when asked for his favourite memory of the last 20 years.

"Maybe what people will keep is the Invincible year (the 2003-04 season when Arsenal were unbeaten en route to winning the league), but for me the job of a manager is to do the maximum with what you have available and that is what I try to do. We are obsessed always by the next game and that is what we expect always: the perfect game in the next one."
