Interim coach for Arsenal Freddie Ljungberg insists that Arsenal needs confidence to start winning. Following their continuous Premier League loss has weakened the team.
Gunners winless run increases to nine games, their worst round since ten matches without a victory in 1977. After suffering a home loss of 2-1 to Brighton and Hove Albion on Thursday at the Emirate Stadium.
Alexander Lacazette’s 50th-minute goal equalizes the 36th-minute of Adams Webster’s goal. Which balances the scoreline until Neal Maupay scored in the last ten minute to end the match.
However, the caretaker of the club believes that only one win could bring back Arsenal. He admits that the players looks weak and scared during the first-half with Brighton.
But they showed a strong will and confidence for about 20 minutes in the second half. The pressure from the supporters of the club could also affect players, Ljungberg said this in a press conference.
“I think it’s obvious that nervousness from the crowd can affect football players no matter what quality you have,” he said.
“If we dig out a win, we can get there like I said. They showed that in the second half.” He ended.
Meanwhile, Arsenal is 10th on the Premier League table and will visit West Ham United on Monday. They could manage to win against West Ham who also suffered 2-0 defeat to Wolverhampton on Wednesday. After winning 1-0 during their visit to Stamford Bridge against Chelsea.
