Premier League match day 29: West Brom 3-1 Arsenal
Arsenal delivered another pathetic and concerning performance. The club now ranks at the sixth place and is likely to miss the Champions League next season, being 5 points behind 4th place Liverpool. Lately, the defense has been miserable showing no signs of improvements after letting Bayern Munich scored 10 goals in two matches.
Arsenal has probably reach its lowest point in years and will have to play both Manchester City and United at home, two must-win matches. Test your luck with no deposit free bets for beginners; the club has yet a chance to finish in the top 4 by winning the majority of the last remaining 8 games. Besides, Arsenal can still save its season by winning the FA Cup (to play the semis against Man City) .
Coach Wenger on the loss:
“It was a difficult game, because it a was a typical Premier League game that you see a lot – with a team that has a lot of the ball and a team that defends deep and well, waiting for the counter-attack and set-pieces. West Brom did very well on that. We had 77 per cent of possession but we didn’t create enough chances. I think that’s firstly down to the quality of their defending and their hard work physically.
I think you don’t see any obvious signs of lack of attitude. That’s what people always criticize when you lose a game. I think we took the responsibility to take the game to them, and it didn’t work today. We are certainly a bit short of confidence as well, but I don’t think it’s an attitude problem”.
On the big four: “It will be a big fight, I agree with you. It will be very difficult now. Anyway, there’s no other way than by fighting and doing it until the last game of the season. Then, if it’s not good enough, we have to take the consequences. And then maybe one day if we don’t do it, people will enjoy it again to be in there”.
The coach also hints he will leave the club upon the completion of his 20th year coach Arsenal: “Don’t worry, I know what I will do in my future. You will soon know. Very soon”.
