Hector Bellerin admitted he was ‘lost for words’ after Arsenal’s latest defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion.
Arsenal slumped to another terrible result on Thursday, losing to Brighton to remain 10th in the Premier League table. After a terrible first half, it seemed like the Gunners had come back into the game, and a late winner seemed vaguely possible.
Then, with 10 minutes to go, Brighton scored and ensured Freddie Ljungberg wouldn’t even take a point from his first home game.
Hector Bellerin suggested everything seems to be going against the team at the moment.
“I don’t know what to say,” Bellerin said. “I have the feeling that whatever we do it doesn’t come out right.
“The team gave its best, we created chances, we defended good but it seems like we need so many chances to score and teams score every chance against us. I am lost for words.”
To an extent, the fact the players feel like that is probably part of the problem. None of them seem to believe they’ll get a result from any given game, and that feeds into their performances.
As soon as something goes against this Arsenal side, they seem to fold completely. We saw it after the disallowed goal, and again after Brighton’s winner. There was no response to those incidents except to give up.
The only way to change that is if they start to win matches. They need a game or two to go their way, but they can’t buy one right now.
