“I Am Desperate” — Wenger
Category : News
Arsene Wenger has revealed how desperate he felt after back-to-back Arsenal defeats earlier in December, and needs to win the upcoming fixtures in other to remain stable in the title race.
The Gunners lost twice in the space of a week – away at Everton and Manchester City – despite being 1-0 ahead in both fixtures, meaning they lost precious ground on Chelsea in the race for the title.
They had been consistent up to that point, but Wenger says those defeats hit him hard, in particular the loss at the Etihad, where two dubious goals gave City all three points.
Asked if Chelsea’s winning run of 12 games made their two defeats all the more frustrating, Wenger told Sky Sports: “If you had lived with me for three days after the Man City game, you would have understood, and not have asked that question in fact, because I was absolutely desperate after these two games.”
