Arsenal's focus on Europa League should give fringe a chance at home

Arsenal's focus on Europa League should give fringe a chance at home

With a record of 26 wins and 12 draws, the side were nicknamed the "invincibles" by fans and pundits.

"After 28 years it is important to win here".

"It's the price we have to pay for not challenging for the championship". "It's been away from home that we have lost our chances". "They were frustrated in the first half but they stuck with us, We don't let it affect us".

The players deserve praise because we showed character at 1-0 down.

Arsenal further tested Butland's goal after Bellerin squared the ball for Elneny, but his shot got blocked, but immediately after Monreal's shot was comfortably caught by Butland.

"To be honest, this season has been more disappointing for us because we had bigger targets", he told the club's website.

Alli was left out of England's friendly matches against the Netherlands and Italy and he has come under fire for diving this season but he answered his critics again four minutes later.

"Because when you play against a team who wants to stay in the PL nowadays, you have a fight, and you have to be ready mentally for it".

Arsenal also lost the League Cup final to City and were knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship club Nottingham Forest.

Meanwhile at Emirates, Arsenal drove Stoke closer to the relegation cliff.

The breakthrough eventually came with 15 minutes left to play when Ozil darted into the box and was tripped by Martins Indi, although the Stoke defender was adamant he touched the ball first.

Referee Craig Pawson wasted no time in pointing to the spot, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang keeping his cool to open the scoring with a well-taken penalty.

Arsene Wenger is not anxious despite Arsenal fans staying away from the Emirates Stadium for Sunday's Premier League defeat of Stoke.

The first half was a drab affair with none of the sides threatening the goal.

There were no surprises when the highly ineffective Danny Welbeck was replaced by Alexandre Lacazette, who was returning after being out for almost two months with a knee injury.

The Gunners were booed off at half-time at Emirates Stadium after seeing Aaron Ramsey clip the crossbar with their only clear chance of the first 45 minutes.

Arsenal ultimately cruised to a 3-0 Premier League win on Sunday, but it was tight and the hosts looked frustrated before Aubameyang broke the deadlock from the spot in the 75th minute.
