Arsene Wenger Wants Arsenal to Come Back to Winning before Dreaming of Title

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admitted that his side’s last night defeat to Chelsea was a big setback for them. Stressing on coming back to winning games, Wenger said that his side needed to come back to winning before dreaming of title. Arsenal lost to Chelsea 1-2 in a thrilling match at Stamford Bridge last night. Though Arsenal opened scoring thanks to Bacary Sagna in the second half of the match, Chelsea clinched the victory as Ivorian striker Didier Drogba scored twice in the end. With this victory, Chelsea moved up to second place in the table replacing Arsenal, who are now in the third with a point behind Chelsea.

Canada.com reported:

"Of course it is a big setback when you add the four games we drew and then losing here," he said. "I feel we have to come back to winning games before we dream of the title.

"I believe we have the strength but at the moment we are six points behind United. We have first to win our next game before we speak about the title. We have to become stronger defensively first.

"I must say we were a bit unlucky because the first goal was really offside," he said.

"Of course that had a big impact on the game. We have been very badly done with that recently.

"It is a game we should have won but we have shown some lapses in concentration that we paid for. That is difficult to swallow because we played quite well and were in control of the game."

Manchester United is currently leading the table with five points clear of Chelsea. So, no doubt, Arsenal and Chelsea have to be at their best in the remaining of the season if they really want to throw enough challenge to Manchester United who are now a step ahead of them in their pursuit to defend the title. It is a bit disappointing for Arsenal that they are now in the third place after leading the table almost all the season. However, Liverpool now seems to be almost out of the race after their last night collapse to Manchester United.
