It might not be good for the Arsenal fans to hear that the players were not exactly fully focused during the week that Arsene Wenger described as a nightmare after the Gunners lost back to back games and both from winning positions, but there is nothing we can do to change those results at Everton and Man City now.
So perhaps the best we can hope for is that these two setbacks have hit home to the Arsenal squad and made ever4y single one of them realise that to have any chance of lifting the Premier League trophy in May they will have to make sure that every game they play is treated with full focus and maximum effort.
So after an earlier href=”http://www.justarsenal.com/arsenal-defender-gabriel-puts-xmas-celebrations-on-hold/67883″ target=”_blank”> Just Arsenal report explained how our Brazilian defender is planning top forget about the festive season and concentrate on football, I was happy to read the comments of young Alex Iwobi reported on the Arsenal website.
The talented Nigerian international accepted that Arsenal had been punished for dropping off in the second half of both matches and declared that the whole squad is determined to get back to the sort of performances and form that had us believing and hoping for the EPL title.
Iwobi said, “Yeah, we’re gonna keep on going, fight until the end and see where we go. We’ll just have to continue how we were playing at the start of the season.
“I guess you could say we took our foot off the gas. Man City took advantage very well in the second half. We were up against a tough side today, we were just unfortunate to not keep the win.
“We started off very well but we weren’t able to keep it up in the second half and we were very unfortunate.
“We just have to continue the way we were playing at the start of the season. We just have to get that back and kick on now and prepare well for the next game.”
If this double disappointment really does hit home to the Arsenal players and makes then fully focused for the rest of the season, could it be just a blip on the road to glory?
