With all the criticism of Arsene Wenger on JustArsenal over the last week, an outsider looking in would think it was safe to assume that Arsenal had lost their last two games and are way behind the leaders in the Premiership. But the reality is that we have WON our last two games and are currently fifth in the table, just two points behind the reigning Champions Man City in third place.
After the 2-0 win at Sunderland, Wenger said on Arsenal.com: “It was very pleasing. The team was very focused, very united, very concentrated not to make mistakes.
“In the end we got a good win with a clean sheet on top. I’m very happy about that.
“It’s our second away game in three days. Before the game, I would have signed for a 1-0 – it became a 2-0 very late in the game.
“I’m very happy. We dropped two points against Hull, so we could compensate and win today.
“It was very important for our morale and to come up the table again as well.”
Okay so we all know it wasn’t the most artistic or dominant display, but the fact remain that we won despite our massive injury list. Also Wednesday’s win makes us hot favourites to go through to the knock out stages of the Champions League. So why can’t Arsenal fans just be happy? I’m certainly glad I’m not a Sunderland fan….
