Arsenal lost their advantage at the top of the Premier League table last night as they suffered their first home league defeat of the season at the hands of Manchester City.
This defeat meant Mikel Arteta’s side have dropped to second place for the first time since November, however the Gunners do still have a game in hand on their title rivals.
Arsenal are now four games without a win in all competitions and the Arsenal boss will know his side need to get back to winning ways & fast if they want to be serious title contenders this season.
The Arsenal team is the youngest in the league & that proved costly in the second-half of the game last night where Manchester City’s quality shone through.
You can tell these Arsenal players haven’t been in this position before, fighting at the top of the Premier League table, meaning they need to listen to players who have. Who better to listen to than the Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry?
The Arsenal king, Thierry Henry has sent a message to the Arsenal players to stay calm.
Thierry Henry on Arsenal after the defeat to City:
“They came to your place & beat you. Can you now show you can respond, & go to Villa & rectify that? Just stay calm. You lost against a great team. Keep your composure. It doesn’t mean everything has to go in the bin. You’ve still got a game in hand.”
