Gabriel Jesus has explained why Arsenal dropped valuable points in recent weeks in the Premier League and mentioned three things that will keep the Gunners in the title race.
Mikel Arteta’s men are still leading with 4 points despite dropping points from winning positions in the last two weeks against Liverpool and West Ham United.
Arsenal surrendered a two-goal lead at Anfield last weekend and also at the London Stadium against West Ham on Sunday.
The Gunners dominated the first quarter of the game and looked like they were cruising to victory, but only two return home with just two points from both matches.
Speaking after the game, Gabriel Jesus who was on the scoresheet in both games says it’s no time to ‘blame each other’ while urging his teammates to ‘raise the level’ of their performances and start ‘winning matches’ in the remaining matches of the season.
“Once again, the three points were in our hands. Obviously the game is 90 minutes, it’s not 20, in this case, today, 30 minutes. As a team, we have to raise the level and come back to our principles.
“We know our strength, we know what we can do. Where we want to attack the opponent, in the first 10 to 20 minutes we did so good, after that we dropped our level and that obviously cannot happen if you want to fight for the title.
“It started from like 5 or 10 minutes before the penalty, because exactly after we scored the second goal we stopped. As a team, it’s no time to blame, as a team we have to raise the level again and come back to our principles and like I said win the games, that’s the only way we can arrive next month and then fight for the title again.”
Arsenal will welcome bottom club Southampton to the Emirates on Sunday as the team looks to return to winning ways in the Premier League.
