FA Cup final win over Chelsea back in May, Community Shield victory over the Blues again at Wembley, last season couldn’t have finished any better for Arsenal, the new season couldn’t have started any better either, and Arsene Wenger had reasons to smile after their latest success against the current champions.
Overall I think we had a performance that was a continuation of what we had at the end of last season and that’s what I want to focus on. In the Premier League every game is a battle like today. You have to get on the edge of it, sometimes winning when you do not play too well
the Arsenal manager said in the Press conference after the match at Wembley, having seen his team win on penalties, after Sead Kolasinac equalized for the Gunners late in the game, canceling out Victor Moses’ 46th-minute goal.
It is a difficult dream to make the fans happy but we try very hard and I would like that they stand behind the team. We might go through some very good periods and some not so good periods. We want to be united and together through the season and hopefully we can be happy at the end of the season
the Frenchman then said, sending a message to everyone at the club, but someone could say mostly to the fans, to stay behind the team throughout the season, and avoid actions similar to those that shook Arsenal’s unity last year.
