Coquelin apologises to Arsenal after derby sacking


The Chilean struck with 14 minutes to play after goals from Toby Alderweireld (60) and Harry Kane (62) had overturned Aaron Ramsey’s (39) first-half opener.

Campbell told SportLobster: “Arsenal fans have been criticising their team for a lack of hunger recently but today the desire was there”.
Arsene Wenger’s team duly fell eight points behind leaders Leicester, who won the late kick off 1-0 at Watford, live on talkSPORT.
Arsene Wenger admits he is not sure whether Arsenal are still in with a shot at the Premier League title.
Asked about Arsenal’s title chances, Wenger said: “I don’t know because I don’t know what to say anymore about that”.
“But we have big regrets because I couldn’t see when it was 11 versus 11 how we would drop points”.
Arsenal’s challenge for the Premier League title suffered a major blow on Wednesday when they lost 2-1 at home to struggling Swansea just days after a damaging 3-2 defeat at Manchester United.
Taking to Twitter after the game, Mesut Ozil in particular was impressed with his side’s courage to come back while Spanish fullback Bellerin in contrast was left ruing what could have been. Then came the two quick-fire goals as Alderweireld stroked in a volley from close range in the 60th minute before Kane curled in a stunning effort from a tough angle at the edge of the area in the 62nd. In between it took us a bit but in the heat of the game it is hard.
“I think we needed a performance like that after the couple of defeats that we’ve had”.
“We seem to enjoy coming here for whatever reason but we need points from all places now and nobody thought we would get them here”.
Now both Sanchez and Ramsey are back among the goals, the Wales global has called on both to keep adding to their respective tallies.
“We made a big mistake at 1-0 but even after the shock at 2-1 we didn’t lose the game and we looked risky going forward”.
For Spurs, it was a second game in succession where they failed to pick up the victory which would have seen them move to the top of the table. I actually thought I could get the ball when I slide tackled (Kane) – that is why I went for it. I touched him and (the referee) gave me the second yellow.
