Arsene Wenger claims that unrest from the Arsenal fans could derail his team’s Premier League title hopes this season.
The Gunners have not won a game in their last three fixtures and only last Saturday drew 2-2 against title rivals Tottenham but fell eight points adrift of league leaders Leicester City.
Pundits believes this season is the biggest chance for the North Londoners to win the Premier League title since 2004 as other title rivals have failed to produce any consistency.
However, Wenger believes that unhappiness from the club’s supporters affect the players confident and hamper their title dream this season.
“I prefer that the fans are happy,” the Frenchman said.
“I’m more worried that it can get to the players’ confidence level, but I feel we have shown a great response as a team that we can deal with that, we analyse that well. We gave the right response.”
Arsenal play against West Brom on Saturday and Wenger is confident that his team can bounce back from their recent poor form.
“You can feel sorry for yourself or respond straight away next game,” he said.
“That’s why I think the group is healthy and there’s a good mentality.”
