A good performance and a fightback with 10 men saw Arsenal leave White Hart Lane with a point on Saturday, but Arsène Wenger admits it may not be enough to win the league.
The result is a good one considering the Gunners played over half an hour with 10 men, but taking the lead and looking capable of snatching a late winner the point wasn’t exactly what the players and fans were looking for.
So, are the Gunners still in the hunt?
“I don’t know because I don’t know what to say about that,” Wenger admitted to the press after the 2-2 draw. “Everybody drops points so let’s see what happens over the weekend. I think we have to take encouragement from our performance today and we have to produce that until the end of the season then we might have a chance.”
Recent form has been poor and the Gunners have now won just one of their last nine Premier League matches. Thanks to the inconsistency of others the title is still up for grabs, should our rivals continue to drop points.
“We are in a position where we not only depend on our own results but the results of teams like Leicester.
“Last year we had no chance but now I don’t know. Three or four years ago we were in the race. It shows that the team has quality and spirit and our balance was right today. We looked dangerous going forward, well organised in midfield and at the back and we moved the ball well. We had a solid performance.”
It was a solid performance, and we haven’t seen too many of those lately. Hopefully we can build on the draw which, considering the circumstances, wasn’t a bad result. Keep it up and you never know.
