Arsene Wenger says Arsenal don’t have enough points on the board to show for their performance. Arsenal have managed just 11 points from 8 games and have never won back to back games this season.
The Gunners have been dropping points left, right and centre and find themselves 11 points behind league leaders Chelsea.
Arsenal haven’t been overrun in any game but they tend to lose focus at key moments. Moreover they haven’t been efficient in either attack or defence.
Look, we have lost only one game in the Premier League but we have not enough points with what we produced. Top level performance is to make the maximum with your potential and sometimes in games you need a fraction more. That’s what we want to do – give a fraction more to be really efficient in what we do.
Wilshere lamented the lack of focus but believes the Gunners will get back on track soon.
In big games this season, we have been so close. In the Man City game, we were close to winning and then a lack of concentration [happens] and we draw the game. If we had won one of those… but we are confident we can do it. We played Tottenham at home as well and feel we should have won the game, we dominated possession. If we can just concentrate a little bit more defensively, then we are confident we can do that.
We haven’t been thumped by any big boys so far but still we are a massive 11 points behind Chelsea. We are not beating sides that ought to be beaten by us(Hull, Spurs, Leicester). Our lack of focus is alarming at times and it’s up to us to make sure it never happens again. No more excuses.
