Arsene Wenger says Arsenal need to get back to basics after watching his side suffer their third defeat in eight days at the hands of Swansea.
The Gunners opened the scoring thanks to Joel Campbell’s smart effort but squandered chances either side of Wayne Routledge’s equaliser before Ashley Williams bundled home a winner with 16 minutes remaining.
Reflecting after the game, the boss said his side were unlucky on the night and lacking in confidence.
“It was a very unlucky defeat because we created many chances, we were unlucky in our finishing and they only had two shots on target which were both goals. It’s a very disappointing result. The players are very down but we have to respond to that.”
He continued: “It looks like it [they lack confidence] a bit.”
Arsenal travel to Sp*rs on Saturday knowing a win would put them level on points with neighbours (stop laughing in the cheap seats). Asked how he’ll solve his side’s problems in the space of two days, the boss replied:
Asked how he’ll solve his side’s problems in the space of two days, the boss replied: “We focus on our job and come back reminding ourselves that we have some quality as well. Of course we have to analyse it as well and bounce back. We have a big game in three days.
“At the moment I am worrying about our results,” he said, when asked if his side’s title chances are gone.
“We just lost three games and that is always a very disappointing moment for the team. At the moment we don’t dream. We have to be realistic and come back to what we do well, the basics.”
He later added: “I don’t know [if the title is gone]. It is very difficult to say because everybody drops points. At the moment, I believe that we need to get back to positive results before we speak about the Championship which is at stake at the moment.
“It is very difficult as it is unpredictable. Manchester City lost, Tottenham lost. It is very difficult to predict what will happen in this league.”
