Arsene Wenger has vowed to “remind” his players about the glory at stake this season with just 14 games left to be played in the Premier League.
Tuesday night’s 0-0 draw with Southamtpon saw Arsenal fail to win a league match for the fourth time in a row, falling from first to fourth on the table in the process.
It was also the first time that Wenger’s men had failed to find the net for three straight games in the Premier League since February 2009.
Spring has often seen the collapse of the Gunners’ title challenge in previous campaigns over the past decade with the 2013/14 season being the most recent.
However, Wenger is planning on a way to regroup his squad with encouraging words rather than making any dramatic changes.
“By reminding the players about what we want to achieve, how we can achieve it, and how much quality they have. Look, let’s not be over-pessimistic as well.” the Frenchman said
“We have qualified in the FA Cup, we are in the Champions League, we have a big opportunity at the end of the month.”
“But we have not to look too much at Leicester or Man City, we have to win football games. We have to focus on how to respond quickly and win our next game, that’s all we can do.”
