Arsenal’s Miserable Midweek Could Get Even Worse Ahead Of Weekend’s Clash

Its frustrating times at the Emirates and it still could go from bad worse for the Gunners faithful.

Following the disappointing draw with Southampton in the Gunners last game, Arsene Wenger let his frustrations get the better of him and lashed out at match officials in the tunnel leading to a heated exchange between him and Saints counterpart Ronald Koeman.

The game was typified by some poor finishing by the Gunners coupled with a goalkeeping master class by recently fit again Saints stopper Fraser Forster, the goalie is yet to concede since his return from injury four games ago.

“It’s always the same with you,” Wenger reportedly said to Craig Pawson, though it was a comment on the officials in general – particularly Mason – rather than Pawson himself.

Ronald Koeman replied the Arsenal manager leaping to the defence of the match officials saying his side rather than the Referees were to blame. There was previously some bad blood between the pair, Koeman was very upset with Wenger’s protest at decisions during the Gunners heavy defeat in the reverse fixture in December.

Wenger despite not retaliating to Koeman’s comments could still face some disciplinary action.

The FA would now have to study Lee Mason’s match report and Wenger could be hit with a fine or even a touchline ban.

Arsenal are keen to get their title challenge back on track with a win at Bournemouth having not recorded a victory in the last four League games, It however a game the gaffer could miss.

    Arsene “useless” Wenger is a sore loser! What does he want Koeman to do- lie down like a dog and get tickled for fun? I can’t stand that man. There’s a difference between losing and taking it with dignity and losing and throwing your toy out of the prom like a spilt brat. Wenger is typical of the latter. Let him go please!! But it’s now too late to get Pep!

    Arsenal will struggle to win the league, we will only win if Tottenham, man city and Leicester falter, collecting 3 points against 4 mid table teams is a indicator, its dissapointing that since new year we’ve dropped from 1’st to 4th, and thinking of visits to Tottenham, Manchester city, Manchester United, its a long road
