Arsene Wenger addressed the press on Friday morning two days after another embarrassing loss, this time to Swansea.
Wenger was keen to emphasise that we’re doing 98% of things right at the moment, we just need to find that other 2% in order to truly be successful. Given our recent performances I’d say we’re doing a lot more than just 2% of things wrong but hey, I’m not the manager.
The boss first gave injury updates on Laurent Koscielny and Petr Cech, who both miss the North London Derby on Saturday. Despite this, he insisted that he does trust David Ospina to slot in and do a job against Spurs. I only wish we could be so confident.
On the other hand, Spurs have received an injury boost as Alli and Dembele could play.
When quizzed about recent comments from former Gunner Thierry Henry, Wenger insisted that he pays them no mind.
Wenger also spoke about putting pressure on referees and possible FA Cup quarter-final dates were announced.
Pochettino was typically lovely about Wenger in his press conference, describing the boss as either a Messi or Maradona.
Coming up overnight we have:
Wenger: Season isn’t over if we don’t beat Spurs
Wenger: If we don’t win the league I don’t care who does
Cech: North London Derby is must-win for both teams
Walcott: Losing to Spurs could ruin our careers
David Seaman ‘fed up’ of negativity, urges Arsenal to beat Spurs
Patrick Vieira: Manchester United still have a chance to win title
Jermaine Jenas: Arsenal think that fourth place equals success
Loan watch: Toral goal reminds us he could yet return
Why Payet winning award ahead of Ozil is understandable
And much more…
