Lichtsteiner: We must stay hungry in training

16

Stephan Lichtsteiner says Arsenal are working hard to finesse their game under Unai Emery’s guidance and his teammates to remain hungry in training every day.

A 3-1 victory over Brentford in the Carabao Cup means the Gunners have extended winning streak to six games, however, the veteran Swiss warned against complacency by underlining the importance of small details in the chase for silverware.

“We want to play for titles – each title, more and bigger ones,” he told the Evening Standard on Wednesday.

“All titles are important for this club and we just want to try and win.

“We need to be hungry in training every day and in the games to see the smallest details.

“It’s often that the small details make the difference and that’s what we’re working on. I think we have a big team with great quality, we’re just working more and more on the details and then we’ll come back to the highest level.”

The Gunners overcame the Bees courtesy of a Danny Welbeck brace and a late Alex Lacazette strike. Despite coasting in the first half, Emery’s men struggled after the break, particularly after Alan Judge’s free-kick swung momentum the way of the visitors.

“Congratulations to Brentford,” Lichtsteiner reflected. “They are a good team. I think in the first half we had an almost perfect game, we could or we should have been 3-0 up and then the game would have been finished.

“Then it was 2-1. It was a difficult game but we were good and it’s also important to win.”

I’d prefer they had eaten before training and don’t run out of energy.

But I guess they know best.

That’s bad news for Snickers then.

totally agree. no team can win without snickers. in fact i think auba shouldnt be doing those flips when he scores. Bouldy should just pass him a snicker bar to munch on.

Scant resource at Cback at the moment.

Not sure why we sent Chambers out on loan or if Sokratis will recover for the weekend.

Was most concerned over Cbacks (Mustafi and Holding) against Brentford getting knocks.

I suppose if one of them does get crocked, Lichsteiner could be a candidate as an emergency Cback.

Monreal can also play there but I have been not as impressed as some deluded people. He has been good going forward but hehas made a number of critical errors this season. Turned too easily by Cardiff’s Camarasa and unaware of empty space behind him. He was also turned by a Brentford player yesterday not to mention against Everton caught too high twice.

NOt to say Lichsteiner is not culpable either but probably best to keep Monreal concentrating on Lback and have the Swiss jump into the fray at Cback.

That said, hope we get Sokratis back but Mustafi and HOlding continue their good form.

Naturally some people will of course blame Mustafi for Leno not sorting his feet out early in the game against brentford. Its awlays Mustafi never someone-else. Presumably its Mustafi’s fault as well for not being two inches taller when Guendouzi gave away the free kick.

It makes me impression that the Lich talks a lot to the press. He has twice more interviews than appearances for Arsenal. Why nobody asks Iwobi, or Nacho, for example?

Because Nacho sounds fresh off the boat and Iwobi is a London road man lol.

Because the club decides who to make available for press interviews.

As we say in Dublin, “he had a head on him”, when looking exasperatingly at some of Mickey Deans decisions.
