0-1！ From leading by 8 points to watching Manchester City win the championship, it collapsed in an instant in a month, and Ta Shuai became a sinner.
In the 37th round of the Premier League, the whole audience held 82% possession rate, but failed to score a goal. In the end, Arsenal lost 0-1 to Nottingham Forest. While sending the key 3 points for Nottingham Forest, I also watched Manchester City lock in the Premier League title in advance this season.
This season, Arsenal led the Premier League standings for a total of 248 days. After beating Leeds United in early April, Arsenal led Manchester City by 8 points in one game, but the gunners’ performance was sluggish after that, first with three draws, and then they were held by Manchester City in the championship battle.
Arsenal’s set collapsed too much, losing in a row, without Manchester City’s life. Although Liverpool also collapsed before, it was forced to the last minute.
Originally, I was thinking about Arsenal fighting for the last round with Manchester City, but I didn’t expect to disarm myself first after losing in a row. Great, Inter are fighting for four life-and-death battles, and Manchester City, which has rested for half a month, will have to play in the Champions League final.
It has been nearly two months since the beginning of April, and the hearts of Arsenal fans are like riding a roller coaster. Many people always count which game Manchester City may lose and lose the championship, but who knows that they will stop eating first.
"Leading by 8 points, I will wash my hair upside down if I don’t win the championship."
After the draw with Liverpool, "it’s still six points ahead. How can it be like falling behind?"
The draw by West Ham suffered two consecutive draws. "I don’t believe Manchester City can win until the end of the season."
After three consecutive draws, "there is still hope for winning the next game against Manchester City" and "one point in Etihad is enough."
After losing to Manchester City, "Manchester City’s opponents are not easy to play, and the Champions League, Manchester City will definitely lose points." "Manchester City will lose three consecutive games and hope to win the championship."
Up to now, everything has ended, and it is whimsical to expect Manchester City to be deducted for sudden violations.
The performance of Arsenal in recent games is really disappointing. The whole team is soft, without fighting spirit, passion and cooperation.
The collapse of the defense line has led to an imbalance in the middle and front fields. The seed of failure is the absence of Saliba and Fu ‘an Jianyang. After falling behind, the so-called counterattack is also trembling. What can be used to win this momentum?
In fact, everything was over after losing to Manchester City. Without the belief of winning, we also faced the inability to adjust tactics after the style of play was thoroughly understood.
There is only one lineup, and one person can’t win without it. Before that, all the starting lineups were the same to win. Such a spiritual S Luo, really don’t give a chance?
The scores of the last eight games are not even as good as those of the relegation team! If Arteta continues like this, whether the team can be put into the top four next season or not. After all, the routines are all familiar, and without the blessing of experience, nothing important can be changed.
Of course, look at the team’s worth and reserves. This season, Arsenal are worthy of themselves and fans, and winning the runner-up in the Premier League is the limit of these young players and young coaches.
You can say that Arsenal’s life is bad, and it fell short after leading for such a long time in the whole season. In fact, it is still insufficient in strength, poor stability and lack of toughness. The more it is played at the end of the season, the more it can be reflected.
Arsenal had the chance to compete for the championship before, which was a single-line battle and a hard work with Arsenal players.
When the players are tired, it is time to reflect the coach’s ability to control. It’s a pity that Arteta was forced, the game preparation was not sufficient, and the on-the-spot command was slow, which gradually enlarged the disadvantage of Arsenal’s lack of benches.
The most puzzling thing is that through the game, we can see how low the training intensity of Arsenal is at ordinary times, which is basically a confrontation without intensity.
It’s not that Arteta is not good enough, but that his ability to fight tough battles is obviously much worse when he faces tough battles in the last few games of the season. Arsenal can’t just spend money to rise.
Now I just hope that this bad state will not last until next season, otherwise everything that has just got better will disappear again.
