Premier League: What Arsenal’s defeat to Watford means – Wenger


Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has admitted that, “it will be difficult” to get back in the Premier League title race, following their 2-1 defeat at Watford on Saturday.

The loss leaves the Gunners nine points behind leaders, Manchester City.

Wenger’s gave up a 1-0 lead as Troy Deeney netted from the penalty spot in the second half and Tom Cleverley scored an injury-time winner from a rebound at Vicarage Road.

It was Arsenal’s third loss in four league away games this season, leaving them in sixth place with 13 points from eight games.

“It will be difficult [to catch the leaders], of course. But I think at the moment we are not too much looking at Man City, we are looking at ourselves.

“We have to bounce back from our disappointment today because we look like we can make results when we play the game like we did in the first half. But we need to be at the level for 90 minutes like that,” Wenger told a news conference.
