Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has revealed that the dressing room was certainly not a calm place to be after the draw which honestly felt like a loss against Watford on Sunday afternoon.
The Gunners resumed action after the international break with a tricky trip to Watford who had just sacked their manager and were starting yet another era of transition so early in the season.
Arsenal appeared to be taking advantage of the turbulence at Watford as they took a comfortable lead in the first half, courtesy of goals from star striker Aubameyang.
However, it was a very different story for the Gunners after the restart as a horrible piece of defending gifted the hosts a goal before David Luiz conceded a penalty very late in the game.
Arsenal had to settle for a point despite having a 2-0 lead earlier in the game and the sheer regret from not winning the match has prompted all sorts of reactions from the fans.
After the final whistle, Leno revealed that the dressing room also reacted with anger and disappointment following what occurred at Watford.
“I don’t know why it was like that but everybody could see that we have to talk about this. In the first half it was better but not perfect. I think we have to be honest and analyse this game. We were lucky we didn’t lose.” he said, (via Goal.com)
“Everybody was angry and disappointed after [the game]. Everybody was emotional, very mad and crazy. But that is normal.
“The manager is a very positive guy. He said ‘calm down and then on Tuesday we analyse this game and then on Thursday we have another game’.”
