Wenger: it’s important to be clear-headed in a tough battle for the top four
Arsenal twice came from behind to claim a 2-2 draw with Man City at the Emirates on Sunday.
After Arsenal claim a draw with City, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said: “We were nervous and surprised by their start. I feared that we could start with the handbrake on because of the pressure we are under.
“We were not completely at our best because of the pressure but we showed mental strength and did not lie down. Mathematically a draw is not the best solution for both teams but it is a point which will help us.”
“You could see that the players were down after it went to 2-1 but they gave everything to come back. The draw is the least we needed today. Psychologically it was important not to lose.
“Koscielny has an Achilles injury, I don’t know how long he will be out for.
“We are in a tough battle for the top four. I am professional and I have shown great loyalty in the past. I love this club, I don’t know how long I will be here, I am clear in my head, that’s the most important thing. The decision will be soon.”
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on Sky Sports: “We started very nervously. We had a refusal to lose the game, we were ready for a fight.
“It was a strong performance on the mental front. Technically we can do better.
“The test was mental. We had to come back after half-time and we got a point after a time that has been so stressful for us.”
