Wenger urges team to ‘wake up’
LONDON - Reuters
Henry was reportedly involved in a row with a fan after the Swansea defeat. AFP PhotoArsenal manager Arsene Wenger has told his players to “wake up and be focused” when the Gunners host champions Manchester United next weekend after back-to-back Premier League defeats.
After a poor start to the season, the north London side had turned around its form to rise from the lower part of the table into the top four but last week’s 3-2 defeat by promoted Swansea City and a 2-1 loss at Fulham have stalled the progress.
Arsenal is in fifth place, 15 points behind leader Manchester City. “That’s now twice where we have given the game away,” Wenger was quoted as saying by the club’s website. “At our level that is frustrating and not good enough. It is down to a lack of composure and the right decision-making. It is alarming because at Fulham we were 1-0 up and we lost the game.”
Meanwhile, the media reported Thierry Henry had been involved in a verbal exchange with an Arsenal supporter after the Swansea defeat.
