Arsenal slumped to yet another defeat in the Barclays premier league and ensured that they are now out of the title race.
Many fans thought that Arsenal have done great business in the summer transfer window and will be one of the favorites to win the league crown.
However, up til now, the fans have seen the usual gunner demise that has been renowned for over a decade.
Arsenal just cannot be consistent under Arsene Wenger even after signing new stars. The only thing consistent are the injuries to key players.
It will be fair to say that Arsenal are currently a one man team with Alexis Sanchez carrying the side forward with consistent performances.
However, the rest of the players are inconsistent or are not trying as hard as the Chilean international. Alexis has scored 12 goals and provided 3 assists in 18 appearances this season.
The former Barcelona star was again on the score-sheet at the weekend against Swansea and gave Arsenal the lead. Minutes later, Gunners collapsed and fell behind via two quick Swansea goals thanks to defensive fragility.
The baffling part is that Arsene Wenger criticized his best player Alexis Sanchez to an extent. Arsene claimed:
“He (Alexis) scored but I think he didn’t have the best games today.”
Yes he might not have been better than his most games but he was still one of the better players on the day.
Moreover, currently, Sanchez is the only in-form Arsenal player. There was no need for Wenger to even mention him like that. A completely undeserved criticism that may as well hamper player’s confidence and demotivate him.
