Wenger: Arsenal Must Regain Self-Belief

MOST COMMENTED

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger was critical of his team’s performance against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday, which the Red Devils won much more comfortably than the 2-1 score line suggests. In a press conference ahead of tonight’s UEFA Champions League clash away to Schalke, Wenger suggested his players are wallowing in self-pity following a run of disappointing results that have seen the Gunners lose three of their last five matches in all competitions.

"At the moment, it is as if the players have forgotten how good they are," Wenger said ahead of the game. "Our game is about creating chances, about going forward, about having an offensive drive. We didn't see that against United. Our form is a concern because we had a very promising start and of course we have gone through a difficult spell. We want to respond to that and rectify that very quickly because it is not only the fact we lost the United game but the way we lost it.”

Arsenal’s record of four wins, three draws, and three defeats, is the club’s worst-ever start to a Premier League season under Wenger. The Frenchman will be looking to rebuild his team’s confidence against a talented Schalke team, which beat the Gunners, 2-0, at the Emirates Stadium last month. Arsenal is currently second in Group B, one point behind Schalke, with six points.
