Arsene Wenger says the morale in his team hasn’t been adversely affected despite two consecutive defeats. The Gunners lost 2-0 in Napoli, before shipping 6 in a defeat at Man City.
But the Arsenal boss is backing the Gunners to use those disappointments to get firing again ahead of the Christmas schedule. Speaking about the Man City game in particular, he said, “It was not all negative because we could have scored six as well. On the offensive front we have shown that we have huge potential.
“I believe that we should come out of that game even stronger in our belief, even stronger in our resolute attitude, because we have shown until now that we can be very strong defensively, and as well on the day we have shown that we can be dangerous against anybody.”
And on the last two results affecting the mood in his squad, he said, “I don’t think they have affected the morale.
“We have made good results until now because we have a good solidarity level and a good togetherness in the squad, and I don’t see any sign of that dropping.
“I think even more that the players are focused to respond on Monday night. It can happen in a season when sometimes you have a bit of a weaker period. How you respond to this kind of problem is what matters.”
Monday should tell us more.
