ARSENAL goalkeeper Petr Cech will be out for three to four weeks with the calf injury he picked up in Wednesday’s Premier League defeat by Swansea City, manager Arsene Wenger has said.
Arsenal have won just three league games in 2016 ahead of Saturday’s crunch north London derby with Tottenham but Wenger claimed he has not witnessed a loss of belief among his players. “It’s a serious calf injury, “Wenger said, “he had a groin alert on the first goal”.
Harry Redknapp believes Arsenal’s fans are entitled to boo after the home fans reacted in anger to the 2-1 defeat by Swansea on Wednesday night.
“If we go out on to the pitch with hunger to become champions, to win the Premier League or the Champions League we can achieve it, to win big things”, Sanchez said.
Wenger defended his decision to send Danny Welbeck on for Campbell in the second half, a move that drew derision from Arsenal fans and cries of “You don’t know what you’re doing!” “I have full faith in (David) Ospina”.
But Arsenal come up against a Spurs side who had put together a fine run of results until their own midweek stutter as they lost at West Ham to pass up an opportunity to go top of the table.
“If we go out on to the pitch with hunger to become champions, to win the Premier League or the Champions League we can achieve it”, Sanchez told DirecTV, as quoted by Sky Sports.
“It looks a little bit like that, yes”, said Wenger, when asked if Arsenal are suffering a crisis of confidence. “I don’t think he will be available on Tuesday but next Saturday he will be alright”.
“No, I don’t see that”. I would like not to comment on that because I say to people what I think face to face. We have as well big regrets because I could not see how 11 against 11 could have dropped points today.
“Every point or three points we get now on is massive – we are going out to win games as we should be doing but even if we win Saturday we know it is not job done”.
