Arsenal players were said to be surprised about the selection of David Ospina ahead of Petr Cech for the midweek Champions League defeat to Olympiacos, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The Gunners were the favourite to go through the next round alongside Bayern Munich, but the defeat leaves them with no points from two games. We just need to be calm.
“Everyone is disappointed, but we will get up and fight for a minimal chance (of qualification)”.
If Arsenal are not organised at the back when they host Louis van Gaal’s team at the Emirates on Sunday, the likes of Anthony Martial, Memphis Depay, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata will have a field day. “There are more problems than Ospina being in goal”.
But they can be as equally frustrating to watch when they make inexplicable defensive mistakes like those made on Tuesday night at the Emirates against Olympiakos in the Champions League.
LONDON, Arsene Wenger may be in the spotlight after Arsenal’s Champions League traumas but his side can go level on points with leaders Manchester United by beating them on Sunday while Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers takes his side to rivals Everton.
Watching Arsenal play is always a attractive experience.
“We have got a couple of days to look back on that performance”.
He said: “Arsenal have no chance. We have to work hard and focus on putting in a good performance against Manchester United”.
It was thought that Cech was being rested for the Premier League clash against Chelsea that followed along with other members of the first team. He recently served a one match domestic ban for improper conduct following his altercation with compatriot Diego Costa.
Costa, meanwhile, was subsequently given a retrospective three-match suspension, having put his hands in the face of Koscielny in a move which acted as a catalyst for the flashpoint with Gabriel.
“I think that is all done, I don’t have anything to say”. Alexis Sanchez’s 38 shots are the most from any Premier League player so far this season, resulting in a disappointing strike-rate of just 8% by the 26-year-old. “Now I am thinking only about Sunday”, Gabriel said. Because we have to win this game.
