Over the course of the season and in particular in the last few weeks, Arsenal has lost all flavors and taste in its football. With Manchester United you have the two major dissatisfactions in the Premier League of the season while a club like Tottenham has been better year after year under Pochettino’s coaching and still fighting with Chelsea for the title [4 points between the two teams].
Coach Arsenal Wenger was very critical and commented:
“The points are the points. They do not come from heaven, you earn them on the pitch. That’s it. We have to fight. We have a cup final, we have still a chance to get into the top four and we have to recover from today and prepare for our next games”.
His opponent Pochettino reacted to the win and the chances for Tottenham with 4 games left:
“Together we have achieved finishing above Arsenal for the first time in 22 years, together we are second in the Premier League and still in the title race and that is most important for me.
I’m so proud because I’m here and fighting for this Club. The important thing is every time we play this season, we’re going to enjoy, and we enjoy playing football and enjoy playing together. That is a fantastic feeling. The players didn’t know about the result between Chelsea and Everton. I knew, I was watching. The important thing was they were free and they went out to play and enjoy the game.”
