Arsenal had lost their five previous games as Chelsea’s guests, but last weekend they seemed to have found a… remedy, not just earning a draw, but also having their chances to win the game.
I felt that was a game with intensity, with two teams going for it, battles all over the pitch, and we responded well. I like when the team shows that kind of response
Arsene Wenger told reporters after the game, which ended in a goalless draw.
I feel it’s a deserved point. With a bit more freedom we could have won this game with one or two goals’ difference. But it was important we didn’t lose. You could see that in the last 20 minutes
the Arsenal manager said, before expanding a bit on how his team had done in their previous away games this season.
When you deliver the kind of performance we had at Liverpool, you have to accept the criticism. You can only respond on the pitch, and we did that. At Stoke, we had a very good performance on the football front, 77 per cent possession, three penalty shouts and, overall, we were a bit unlucky with the goal we didn’t score. The result was disappointing, but not the performance
the Frenchman said about their 4-0 humiliation at Anfield and 1-0 loss at Stoke City.
