Arsenal are heading into a sixth straight season without the Champions League. Beaten by Newcastle (0-2) on Monday, the Gunners probably left the last ticket for C1 Tottenham.
The disappointment of Arsenal players on the lawn of Newcastle
In less than a week, Arsenal have arguably ruined their entire season. The London club, long in the race for qualification in the Champions League, fell to 5th place in the Premier League in the final sprint by conceding a second consecutive defeat against Newcastle (0-2) Monday, four days after the heavy setback suffered in the derby against Tottenham (0-3).
Arsenal missed out on their match
Doubled by Antonio Conte’s Spurs, winners on Sunday against Burnley (1-0), Mikel Arteta’s team now find themselves two points from 4th place a day from the end. Arsenal is therefore no longer in control of its destiny. I’m incredibly du. It’s very painful. It was in our hands and today it is no longer regretted the manager of the Gunners after the meeting.
As so often in recent years, Arsenal missed a key moment in their season. Facing the Magpies, Alexandre Lacazette’s teammates never gave the impression of being able to win or fight for a place in C1. We did nothing in this game. They were much better than us in all areas of the game. We were poor with the ball admitted Arteta.
G. Xhaka – we don’t deserve to play in the Champions League
A little later, his midfielder Granit Xhaka made the same observation. From the first to the last minute, we didn’t even deserve to be on the pitch! I can’t explain why. We did not respect the plan put in place at all, we did not cost the coach, admitted the Swiss international at the microphone of Sky Sports. We delivered a disastrous performance. We don’t deserve to play in the Champions League, or even in the Europa League.
Once again, the mind seems to have played a nasty trick on the players who failed to respond to the challenge of this meeting on the lawn of St James’ Park. If a player was not ready for this match, he had only to stay at home, launched Xhaka. It’s not a question of age. If you’re too nervous, stay on the bench or at home! We need players who have the balls to play.
Towards a 6th season in a row without C1
Before the 38th and last day of the Premier League which will be played on Sunday, the calculation is simple: to finish in the top 4, Arsenal must beat Everton and count on a defeat by Tottenham against Norwich, the 20th in the standings who have won only three league games in 2022. Suffice to say that the Gunners will need a miracle not to live a sixth season in a row without the Champions League. A tarnish.
