The Gunners right back Bacary Sagna knows that Arsenal have been going through a bad patch recently, but he reckons that they now need to bounce back at the Emirates if they are going to seriously challenge for any trophies this season.
“It’s going to be a massive game against Fulham,” Sagna said. “We need to impose ourselves in our stadium. We want to show we can race for the title and the best way to do it is first of all to home win games.
“It’s a home game – we want to show we are a good team. We want to bounce back from previous games. We drew on Tuesday and we lost at Man United. We want to show we have a good team. We want to show we can be strong and we’ll do it.
“Fulham have been doing well,” Sagna concluded. “A few years ago, they were not that good. They had a good team and they had good players, but position-wise in the table, they were not as high as today.”
Arsenal are currently in seventh place on 15 points along with Fulham and West Ham, and anything less than a win could see them drop even further. Now is the time for action Bacary!
“Today they have the same points as we have, and it’s going to be a tough opponent and a tough game to play. But we are playing in front of our fans in our stadium and we want to show we are better.
