In a pivotal week where we really needed to step up at two tricky away games, it was the same old story, and we failed to get a single point from two games, despite leading in both games.
Everton away, and Man City away at the start of the season are games in which you might take a draw before kick off, but in the form we have been in recently, you’d have expected a LOT more from Arsenal.
In fairness, City’s equaliser was offside, their winner probably wasn’t but who knows, if they don’t equalise straight after the break, it could all have been different.
Ozil has been singled out once again for being lazy and failing to track back, these fans quick to forget he’s been our best player all season before the Everton game. The usual Wenger Out’s are back screaming for the Managers head and it’s easy to understand why, but surely there’s no need for this every time results don’t go our way.
Results, REALLY haven’t gone our way this week, we’ve drawn Munich in the Champions League, lost twice, while all of our main rivals and Spurs have all won twice, with Liverpool still to play tonight.
Anyway back to the game, Theo put us ahead nice and early with a tidy finish and we were leading at half time. They equalised with an offside (by miles) goal, we lost our heads, they then scored a winner and wasted time for the rest of the game – job done for City. Plenty of work to do for us now to try and cut the deficit between us and Chelsea at the top of the league.
You’d have to say our next six games are winnable, let’s just hope these two poor defeats, and the fan’s overreaction don’t bring the players down so much we go on a bad run ahead of the Chelsea game, leaving them to deliver the final blow to our title chances.
