Wenger wants to see response to QPR defeat in Man City fixture
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has called upon his side to respond to their defeat at Queens Park Rangers by facing Premier League title contenders Manchester City and starting a new unbeaten run, the Metro has reported.
The loss at Loftus Road brought an end to Arsenal’s run of seven consecutive league victories, a streak that had moved the Gunners into third place ahead of North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. But with the R’s beating Arsenal and Spurs seeing off Swansea City, the two Champions League-chasing clubs are level on points again with seven games left in the season.
Wenger is quoted as saying: “Each football game is a new start. It is not what you have made before that decides the game, it is what you produce on the day. We know how to respond.”
QPR went in front through a Adel Taarabt’s first Premier League goal only for Theo Walcott to level the scores before half-time, converting the rebound after his original shot struck the post. Samba Diakite however put the home side back in front in the second-half and Rangers held on for a three points that boosts their battle against relegation.
