“SportPesa then tweeted a picture of Aubameyang with his head in his hands next to Mkhitaryan with the caption: “‘”#YoPierre… we’ve made a massive mistake here pal”. In addition to being the ideal “point of reference” for Conte’s system he scored 14 goals in 19 matches in the first half of the season, of which five were game winners and two were equalisers.
With 10 Premier League games remaining in the 2017/18 season, it is hard for Arsenal to qualify for next season’s Champions League by finishing in the top four. We want to win the Premier League as soon as possible. Chelsea have an FA Cup quarter-final to come and their Champions League knockout tie with Barcelona is finely poised after the first leg but this campaign seems a missed opportunity.
Chelsea have paid nearly £240m to secure eight players since claiming the title, recouping significant fees for Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic among a large overhaul.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has faced up to a hard period at Arsenal by accusing some of his teammates of being “resigned” to their situation. After enjoying a good start to life in England, the Gabon worldwide has had to suffer consecutive defeats at the hands of Manchester City.
“I knew before the game the first half would be hard for us after what happened on Sunday and we needed at least to be level at half-time”.
Conte’s men are fifth in the table with 10 matches to go and a trip to runaway leaders Manchester City on Sunday could see the Blues slip further off the pace.
City ace Bernardo Silva said: “It was a great game for us, especially the first half”.
Sane was again involved before Sergio Aguero played in David Silva to slot home at Petr Cech’s near post. That is very clear. I had space on my left foot and I cut in and shot. I would. Mesut Ozil is good enough when he is at his pomp. We entered the game really, really focused and we controlled and dominated, we deserved the win and it is the third win of the season over Arsenal which is very good for us.
Brighton, unbeaten in all competitions home or away since January 20, are next up and Wenger conceded after the latest defeat to City that confidence was low and knows the poor away record needs addressing.
“People always think, “A lot of points in front, we can relax”, and we did the opposite”.
“You see that even in the teams in the second part of the table, you have six worldwide players”.
City come into the match on the back of a 3-0 league victory over Arsenal on Friday morning (Singapore time). “We lost to a team that is the best in the country at the moment”.
