Wenger believes Arsenal stutter is down to a lack of belief

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has suggested the inconsistent results recorded by his side in recent games is because the players do not believe in themselves, the Metro has reported.

The Gunners drew 1-1 with Stoke City on Saturday, having previously drawn 0-0 with Chelsea and lost 2-1 at home to relegation threatened Wigan Athletic. Prior to these last three results Arsenal comfortably dispatched Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-0 and defeated Premier League title-chasing Manchester City with a single goal.

While there may have been some disappointment amongst the Arsenal hierarchy at the draw with the Potters, Wenger admitted it turned out to be a decent outcome following Newcastle United’s defeat by Wigan, which stretched the gap between the sides to four points. Wenger said: “It’s a good result because Newcastle dropped points but for us it’s important to win our next two games. Anything less will not do. Recently we haven’t scored so many goals…maybe it is linked with belief.

Arsenal next play Norwich City away at Carrow Road while West Bromwich Albion visit the Emirates Stadium on the final day of the season, and if Wenger’s side do win both of those fixtures as the manager is demanding, Arsenal will be guaranteed a place in next season’s Champions League.
