As usual, the Arsenal (supporting?) internet warriors are predicting doom and gloom after the Gunners slumped to their first defeat in the League and the Champions League since the opening day of the season. This means that we are now sitting in 3rd place in the table with a crucial clash at the Etihad this coming weekend.
But why do Arsenal fans always give up after every single loss? We have lost twice, Chelsea have lost twice, Liverpool and Tottenham have lost twice. Why is it only Arsenal fans think that this means the end of our hopes for the season? No team goes through the season winning every game, and we all know that anyone in the Premiership can beat any other opponent if things go their way on the night!
If anyone should be seriously worried about Sunday’s game it is the City manager Pep Guardiola, who started the season so well but now find themselves slipping down the table after defeats to Chelsea and Leicester, before finally getting some points last night against Watford. City are also without Aguero and Fernandinho through bans, Vincent Kompany is on the injury list, and last night they also lost Ilkay Gundogan to an ongoing knee injury.
The midweek loss was Arsenal’s first away defeat for nine months, why should we think that suddenly we have become a bad team and will therefore lose another one this weekend?
Maybe, just for once, Arsenal fans could be positive for a change?
