Arsene Wenger said the draw against Manchester United was a fair result, but admitted there’s no further room for error this season.
With just three games left, Arsenal will most likely need maximum points to secure a top four place, and the Arsenal manager is confident his team can do it.
“There’s no room for dropping points. We are in a position where we cannot drop points, we know that. If we win our other games it will be enough.
“I am convinced we will be there but there is no room for dropping points. But the other teams are in the same position. Overall I can only praise the players for the effort, the dynamic and the desire we put in.
“Let’s keep it going like that and we will have a chance to be where we want to be.”
Bacary Sagna’s error proved costly in the end, but the boss reminded people that he’s a player who has, since he joined, been remarkably consistent until this campaign.
“He is very disappointed tonight, he is a boy who gives absolutely everything in every game. I think he made a bad pass, that can happen, and maybe after he panicked a little bit and maybe wanted to repair too quickly what he did, but he had time to tackle.
“He has saved us so many times that unfortunately it happened today.”
While frustration is understandable, and nobody can deny Sagna has had a poor season overall, perhaps it’s worth bearing in mind before all the vitriol is launched his way.
