Arsenal's Arsene Wenger blames Newcastle defeat on fatigue from Moscow trip

Arsenal's Arsene Wenger blames Newcastle defeat on fatigue from Moscow trip

Jonjo Shelvey's long pass picked out Dwight Gayle in the Arsenal area and, with Gunners defender Shkodran Mustafi out of position, he was able to lay off to DeAndre Yedlin.

"Mustafi seems to still be making the same mistakes he made earlier this season", Keown said about the German, drawing the same conclusion as many others. Rafa, he argued, doesn't play an exciting enough brand of football for the Arsenal fans to get behind, that setting teams up to avoid defeat was his main footballing principle.

The Germany worldwide got it from both barrels from Keown on Match of the Day 2 last night as the 51-year-old laid the blame for the 2-1 defeat at Newcastle at the defender's door. "The same thing happened again".

It warps your mind just a bit when you keep telling yourself that Mohamed Diame is actually our best player, certainly over the last couple of months. You have to be on your toes and you have to be sideways.

'Yes, in principal we are relaxed, ' said Benitez.

"But you look at Tottenham. He's just looking at the ball, he doesn't know what's going on around him".

Slimani had the Arsenal defence all over place with his power, direct running and unselfish play to set up both the winning goal AND two other chances when Kenedy hit the bar and Perez should have done better with another opportunity.

Both players were acquitted of all charges, but it was decided they were to be let go due to their behaviour regardless. Mr Logan insisted sponsorship money did not have any impact on the club's decision.

Danny Murphy who spoke to talkSPORT following Newcastle's 2-1 victory over Arsenal believes that the Spaniard would be a great fit for the north London club.

Therefore, the game ended in yet another away loss for the Gunners, who have yet to even take a point away from home in the league in 2018, while the win all but means that Newcastle are safe from relegation this season.

'With so much investment it is increasingly hard but they want to link us to the club for more time so that we can make a stronger team if possible'.

The Arsenal midfielder may have have ended up on the losing side, but the fault was not his. "It worked", Wenger added, implying this was no longer the case.

Perhaps it's unfair to put too much blame on Mustafi alone.

The current campaign has been particularly error-strewn for the 25-year-old centre-half, with costly lapses in concentration leading to criticism in a Carabao Cup final showdown with Manchester City and Premier League games against Southampton and Newcastle.
