Another bad weekend to be an Arsenal fan as we have seen Leicester and the Spuds pull even further in front of us in the League table, but although we are resigned to our fate, we can only keep going with our fingers, arms and legs all crossed in the hope of a miracle.
Our new midfielder Mohamed Elneny is in no doubt that the Gunners just need to keep plugging on. “We will fight until the end, until the last game in the league, to achieve what we want. Let’s see the final outcome then,” he said after Saturday’s game.
“Today we wanted to snatch the win even though we were playing against a strong team. Maybe the final result is not this much in our favour, however we are doing our best in each game.
“We conceded two goals at a very hard time. We should have ended the first half 2-1 up but the equalising goal came at a very crucial moment.
“At the start of the second half we started organising our team to win the game and step up our performance, however we conceded a third goal so we tried and pushed to get an equaliser. We finally did that but we couldn’t snatch the win in the end.
“We are fighting for the league title, this is why we had to play in an offensive mode to win the game, but thanks God for the final result. The best is yet to come.”
This is definitely one of he weirdest title races I have ever seen, and for that reason I think we should never give up until there is absolutely no chance at all. Maybe the Tottenham team will get food poisoning? Maybe Leicester will all get Spanish Flu, and maybe, just maybe, Arsenal will win the rest of their games……
