Premier League: Bournemouth 2-1 Arsenal

Every year is the same story. Literally you can go back to our previous articles in 2017, 2016, 2015 etc…, and you will have posts about Arsenal lack of intensity and uninspired performances. Once again the team did not show up and probably stayed in the bus.

You have to ask yourself how worse can it get? Alexis Sanchez is likely to leave the club this month and Arsenal cannot hold on to the lead (1-0 at the 70′). The arrow is pointing down for the Gunners. 

Coach Wenger on another bad game:

“I feel overall physically it was a tough game for us. We made it most difficult and after that we were 1-0 up. We made two very surprising mistakes that were not even forced errors, it was just a lack of decision-making and overall you come out of the game thinking: how did we lose the game? That was it basically, but by being very harsh I would say as well that we have not created enough with the possession we had.

We looked a bit lacklustre in the final third, not sharp enough to create chances and that’s why as well when you are 1-0 up normally you should create more to be dangerous and we paid for that. It was a combination of the two which made us pay a heavy price.

It’s frustrating. It’s very frustrating and very disappointing result for us, especially when you are 1-0 up and we made mistakes in areas where you wonder where they come from.

I am not concerned about the spirit, I am concerned about the fact that when it matters we are not dangerous enough, we are not sound enough at the back. Where it matters is in your box and where it matters is in the final third, offensively we didn’t look dangerous enough today”.
