In yet another disappointing performance which gives us a record of three home draws in a row, Arsenal’s Man Of The Match Bernd Leno thinks that the game could have gone either way as the Gunners were simply not playing their best against the Wolves. Our keeper said: “I think both teams had many choices and at the end we could have won or lost, so the result is okay for the performance.”
He deserved the MOTM especially for his brilliant stop that avoided us going 2-0 behind, and he admits it was vital for the team. “I think if we conceded the second goal then the game would have been finished,” he said. “so it was important to concede just the one goal so that we had the chance to at least draw. At the end we could have won this game.
“Of course we are 16 games unbeaten, but we have to win these games because these games at home are very important. Today the result is a little bit disappointing.”
Going by our last few displays it seems amazing we have not been beaten for so long, and it is an indictment that our keeper was Man Of The Match in a home game against Wolves that we have lost some of our attacking flair, and we can only hope that we find it again while we are off for the international break. Our next game is away at Bournemouth, who are now just 4 points behind us in 6th. We will definitely have to get our mojo back for that one….
