Arsene Wenger watched his side finally come good in the second half against Wigan last night, but he thinks the game was much closer than Arsenal’s winning margin suggests. He said after the game: “We had a quick start and a strong start for the first 20 minutes. We were really dominating and after that we became a bit conservative and pushed forward less and allowed Wigan back in the game.
Arsenal were thoroughly put in their place last night by an excellent Bayern Munich side, and itis now glaringly obvious that the Gunners can no longer compete at the top table, but (predictably) Arsene Wenger gave his side credit for their “battling” qualities, albeit after they were 2-0 down…..
Arsene Wenger is preparing his Arsenal side to face Stoke City this weekend and is hoping that the Gunners can start playing just as well in the first half of the game as they usually do in the second half! In too many matches this term Arsenal have given away soft goals early on in the games and have had to fight back valiantly to get a result.
Once again Arsenal made it hard for themselves by conceding early goals in last night’s draw with Liverpool, and Arsene Wenger admitted that his defence was nervous because of the previous misdemeanours in recent games, but he praised the players for the excellent comeback.
Arsene Wenger admitted that he was a little worried when the score against Partizan was still level peggings with just 20 minutes to go, but he knew from the previous Partizan games this season that they would flag towards the end of the game.
