Mathieu Flamini admitted after the 0-0 draw against Hull on Saturday that if Arsenal can’t finish the amount of chances they’re making, then they’re not doing enough.
Joining the ‘On the Final Whistle’ team after… well… the final whistle against Hull, the midfielder (sporting his strange shower sandals) admitted that although we had a huge amount of chances, it doesn’t really matter if we’ve not putting them away.
The Frenchman also pointed out how this type of performance is becoming a regular occurrence for the Gunners. Even though we got a late, late winner against Leicester, until that moment we’d been hammering their goal with chances but none were finding the back of the net.
“It was a very, very frustrating game,” he said.
“We had the opportunity a few times to close the game and win it.
“Unfortunately we didn’t so I think frustration is the main word of the game today.
“We were a bit lucky last weekend to score in the last second of the game against Leicester City, but it didn’t happen today.
“We had many opportunities and chances and this is not the first game that has been like that. Even against Southampton and Leicester it was like that and today we had plenty of opportunities.
“If you don’t finish it, it is not enough. Now we have to play away and win that game.”
This is an issue because, as Flamini said, it doesn’t matter how many shots you have, if they’re not going in they don’t count. You don’t progress to the next round because you’ve had more shots on target, nor will it earn you three points in the League.
