Arsenal go to Man City today to try and hang on to third place in the league knowing that a draw will be enough to take into the final game against Villa.
Maybe this is why Arsene Wenger has come out again publicly to criticise his defence in the hope of getting a better performance out of them today.
Le Prof said: “We have to add something defensively as a team to be more ruthless,”
“Once you are two up at West Ham you finish 3-3 you question the team defensively. We were not strong enough defensively. We gave cheap goals away against Man United and were punished for it.
“I don’t think we are soft but we need to toughen up. In some games we were caught, but a lot of the teams have the same problem.”
It is unusual to see the Boss publicly haranguing his players but he has been critical of the defence for some time now whoever is playing.
Perhaps when he says “Add something defensively” he is talking about some summer arrivals??
