Wenger facing worst season with Arsenal

Defeat meant that Arsenal have now suffered seven defeats since the start of 2018 - more than any other Premier League club - after going down to Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest, Swansea, Tottenham, Ostersund and Manchester City, twice. "We want to take this crown but, not too long ago, they made fantastic things".

Wenger said that they need to play against City without fear.

'When I came to Celtic, they hadn't been in the Champions League for three seasons and I got them back.

Pep Guardiola accepts Manchester City are "close" to securing the Premier League title, but stresses it is not "done" despite his side requiring only five more victories.

"I think the time has come now for the people above to say: "Enough is enough - it's time for someone else to come in", Sky Sports" analyst and former England and Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher added.

The minimum requirement for Antonio Conte this season will be to guide the Blues to Champions League qualification for next season, after the west London side won the title last term.

"There's so much to play for, so hopefully we can win all our remaining games. We can't deny it was a tough game after beating Arsenal four days ago".

A defiant Arsene Wenger hopes that his vast experience will halt Arsenal's worrying slump and said that he is "ready for a fight". Let us know in the comments. You have to have the players focused and to feel that they can do better. After enjoying a good start to life in England, the Gabon global has had to suffer consecutive defeats at the hands of Manchester City. The Baggies are winless in their last five games and they now sit in last place, seven points from safety. "That's the difference at the end of the day and they're top of the league for that reason".

Champions-elect City lead fifth-placed Chelsea, the Premier League holders, by 22 points ahead of Sunday's clash at the Etihad Stadium.

Gunners boss Wenger admitted that confidence was low in his camp. Willian has put in a good shift in recent weeks, but the Brazilian has often lacked the concentration to carry the team during moments of pressure. We all talk about it and the backroom staff tell us we have to go game by game.
