After giving away two healthy leads in a matter of 4 days just before the International break erupted, Arsenal were only looking short of confidence to say it mildly. If a team scores 4 goals in two matches and still manages to win none, that something beneath the ground. And with the latest admission by Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta, Arsenal fans have got a certificate for their recent doubts regarding their team’s lack-luster shows.
When you see the faces (of fans) in doubt, it is not good as these are top quality players.
About to kick start an array of matches in which they are about to meet a well-managed Manchester United side which is to be followed by the high flying Germans Borussia Dortmund at the Emirates.
Arsenal skipper took the criticism on his chin by stating that his job as a captain is to lead with confidence. But with his own performances going down the drain this season for the Gunners, it’ll be worth a watch that how the Spaniard picks up his team-mates.
Arsenal have been handed a huge injury boost by the return of striker Olivier Giroud. However, the striker is not expected to take part in the upcoming match. As a result, the new born partnership of Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck is expected to deliver for the Arsenal team.
But Arteta with all his claims and analysis on why his Arsenal team are going down, has given a good curve to his manager to work on as a big game approach. And the recent record of Arsenal against good teams is better. These claims made by their captain should stir up the Gunners boys for the big upcoming tests.
