Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has begged Gunners fans to enjoy the quality produced by his team instead of boycotting games like they did at the Emirates Stadium in Thursday’s 2-0 win over West Brom.
It looked like the Arsenal fans have grown tired of lack of Premier League title for the North Londoners since 2004 and an incredible high cost of watching home matches, higher than regular title contenders Manchester City and United.
However, Wenger seems to be flowing in a different wavelength with the fans as he want implored the fans to stick with the team and enjoy the quality of play instead of boycotting their games like they did against the Baggies.
“To come and support the team. If you love football, you go out there and I think you see quality football,” he said.
“That’s what we try to give to our people.”
On the game against West Brom, he said: “It was a special night as well, Thursday night, and I don’t know if you are intelligent enough, nor am I, to detect exactly why everybody that did not turn up tonight did not turn up,” he said.
“I believe we dominated from the start to the last minute and in fact, [that] was what we did against Crystal Palace. Overall I believe the quality of our game was very good. Maybe, we could have scored more goals.
“That is the only thing you could say tonight. We didn’t concede and couldn’t finish the game off the way we wanted.
“We want to finish as high as possible. You never know what happens in front of you.
“There can still be twists and turns but we want to win our games. We came out of West Ham and Crystal Palace thinking we had produced the quality and didn’t get the points.
“If you look at our last five games, we won at Everton, we won against Watford, we had two draws and we won today.”
The win against West Brom takes Arsenal two points above Manchester City and into third on the Premier League log with four matches left this season.
