Arsenal played with so much tension claims Norwich City star

Max Aarons says Arsenal was under serious pressure to win when they faced them at the weekend and he could feel the tension around the stadium.

The Norwich full-back was a part of the Canaries team that was beaten by the Gunners at the weekend.

Both clubs had been winless heading into the match, but Arsenal was at the bottom of the league table as they hadn’t scored a league goal before the encounter.

Mikel Arteta had a majority of his key players back for the game and he had no excuse not to win the match.

Norwich was determined to get points from the Gunners as other teams have done before them, but they failed.

Aarons said he could feel the tension around the Emirates and it was obvious that it was a game that Arsenal needed to win for the sake of their fans.

“You could tell Arsenal were under a bit of pressure,” he told Rio Ferdinand’s ‘Vibe with Five’ YouTube channel.

“You could feel in the game that the fans were a bit tense and the players were a bit tense. You could feel it in the stadium.”

Arsenal will hope that is the start of something good and the fans will be keen to see them go on a winning run now.

  1. Indeed, tables bottom can’t be a happy day, but Arsenal fans praised all over press for support they brought to team even in defeat.

    Sure Norwich fans must be celebrating sitting at bottom, no tension; to be in EPL is an all year long party. A two way trip, back to Championship!

    Definetly got nerves, talking about tension sitting bottom!

  2. Max is too good for the shower we see week-in week-out.
    The team win the Chumpionship but nothing else.
    They’re so depressive to watch. The manager accepts everything, that’s why we have clueless player’s that tackle in the wrong areas.
    I feel we will not reach five wins this season, as the quality of the Premier League had moved on again. The gap in quality to that of the Chumpionship is vast.
    Instead of signing tried and tested Premier League players, they buy from a jumble sale and sign loannees must play every game except against home club, wasting a valuable position that can be developed for the future. Why waste all that money on Gunn? Out of sentiment not nouse when, a loanne could fill the position like Scott Carson.
    We have a team of nothing. I am taller than Aarons and I am in a wheelchair.
    Norwich always flatter to deceive like the cook at the helm, nice unpenetrative football with cheap ingredients!
    Ebenezer Christmas nil point.
    OTBC – Often Trounced Before Christmas!

  3. Definitely Arsenal were tensed both the players and fans, because Arsenal are never in such a situation, its not something to be happy about. Maybe Norridge are never tensed in such situations because they are used to it. We are off the mark and hopefully the winning run continues.
