Out of touch
Much to the annoyance of the Arsenal fan base, Wenger still managed to find positives from Thursday night’s performance.
“…The game last night [against City] was not all negative,” he told Sky Sports.
“There were a lot of positives in that game. With that size of score, it is always tempting to think it was all rubbish but that was not the case
“The strong points are that we played at a high intensity, we were quite good going forward but we couldn’t take advantage of the chances we created,” the Frenchman added.
Hughton backs Wenger
In his pre-match press conference, Brighton boss Chris Hughton came out in defence of the underfire Arsenal manager and backed him to turn things around.
“He is an outstanding manager – has been and still is,” Hughton told reporters on Friday.
“There is no one with more experience and I have absolute respect for what he has done and the ability he still has.
“You can’t be a manager of that long without having difficult periods. The majority of time he has been there, there have been pluses.”Claim a £100 free bet on Brighton vs Arsenal with Royal Panda
