Arsenal are now wallowing in 4th position on the Premier League table, this is a result of two consecutive defeats in the League.
Arsenal star defender Gabriel Paulista reckons that they as a team have to reflect and do better in subsequent games.
Gabriel has been standing in for Mustafi, who is yet to taste a defeat for Arsenal.
“We had two away games to gain six points, and we ended up not achieving that,” Gabriel said.
“We lost both games on reversals [losing from a winning position], with basic mistakes.
“This cannot happen. I think each of us needs to reflect and try to keep each other in check. We must know how to demand from each other, and how to respect each other.”
As Gabriel says, that’s twice in one week that we’ve lost 2-1 from being 1-0 up early on. Not only should we be winning these games, we shouldn’t be performing the way we are.
Against Everton and then against City, Arsenal looked as if they were sleepwalking through one of the biggest fixtures of the season so far and it’s simply not good enough.
It wasn’t even a case of City being good, it was, as usual, just us being terrible and that says a lot.
