Arsenal's title hopes dealt blow by Watford defeat


The Gunners lost further ground in the title race on Tuesday after goals from Younes Kaboul and Troy Deeney sent them to defeat - a result which left The Gunners in third place and nine points behind Chelsea.

Chelsea will be looking tighten their grip at the top of the Premier League table when they take on Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that his team were mentally not ready for Watford's challenge as he watched another Premier League title tilt appear to evaporate into thin air.

"For him to say: 'I'm happy that you have reacted well to defeat [against Watford], guys we still have a chance, let's stick together so we have a chance to go and have consistent performances throughout the remainder of the season'".

The Blues claimed a valuable point in midweek as they drew 1-1 against Liverpool, and might even have won at Anfield had Diego Costa not fluffed his lines from the penalty spot late in the second half. "I thought we were brilliant second half, but obviously we only scored one goal".

Second-half substitute Lucas Perez hit the bar as Arsenal chased a leveller but Watford held on to secure the win.

"On top of that we were a bit unlucky because I felt we were unlucky to concede a free-kick and then it was deflected too". "No, I don't think so [it will cause him to miss Chelsea]".

Mazzarri's side, beaten by League One Milwall in the FA Cup on Sunday, suddenly looked vulnerable every time Arsenal attacked and had to dig deep to stifle a forward line now led by Sanchez through the middle.

Wenger could be situated either at the back of the lower tier or in the front rows of the upper tier, but either way he will be able to give pre-match and half-time team talks and can also communicate with his coaching staff during the game.

There is no box on the same side of the stadium as the Arsenal dressing room, so Wenger will have to sit among the fans.

"It was not good in the first half, especially in the first 20 minutes".

"They have to for the confidence, for Arsene Wenger to have a real and direct discussion with his players", added Desailly, who was speaking at a TAG Heuer Premier League Pressure Test. I'm frustrated we didn't win.
