Following their third consecutive draw in all competitions, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has admitted the team’s dip in form but says he will not panic.
Arsenal’s latest draw was against Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League. The Gunners were well on their way to securing a win, until Mucas Moura’s late header dashed their hopes.
This results means Arsenal, have now fallen behind PSG in Group A, though they remain unbeaten in all competitions, fans are beginning to worry about the mid-season slump in momentum.
“We have not lost, but we have lost a winning momentum a little bit but we played against a good team,” he said. “I believe I have to be careful on the choice of my words. I say ‘stuttering’ and it comes back at me.
“We have a special strength in the squad, a consistency in results. We are unbeaten in 18 games. Sometimes you go through spells when you win a bit less. But we have to continue without losing and transform draws into wins. There’s no reason to panic.”
“We are second but it’s not over,” he said. “We have a 90 per cent chance to finish second but we’ve not lost a game. Overall we’ve done the job well.
“The advantage if you finish first is to play the second game at home. We had a very strong start in the second half and were dominant, but then we dropped off.”
