Arsene Wenger finds ‘positive’ in disappointing Premier League start for Arsenal

Arsene Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that staying unbeaten in the Premier League is one ‘positive’ point in an otherwise disappointing start to the season.

Arsenal’s start to the 2014-15 Premier League season has been disappointing, and it continued on Saturday.

It may have been the North London derby, but the 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur will still read as two points dropped especially as the game was held at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsene Wenger’s side remain fourth in the league table, but they are now six points behind leaders Chelsea, having picked up 10 points from six matches so far this season.

Wenger is understandably ‘frustrated’ with the disappointing start that Arsenal have made to the season, but he still manages to find a 'positive'.

‘It’s frustrating’, Arsenal’s official website quotes him as saying on Saturday. ‘I think the positive is that we are unbeaten but the negative is that we’ve missed four points from the quality of the games we’ve played.

‘Somewhere we have to keep that unbeaten record and I think at some stage we will win the games instead of drawing. I think today we would have won had we not conceded the first goal’.

Arsenal’s unbeaten record in the Premier League is laudable indeed, especially when one considers that defending English champions Manchester City have lost once while Manchester United have suffered two defeats.

However, Arsenal need to convert those draws into wins or else they could find themselves slipping further and further away from the top of the table.
