There are a couple ways to observe Arsene Wenger‘s comments following Arsenal’s 2-1 loss at Bournemouth on Sunday.
On one hand, he is a Premier League legend showing a level of concern yet not wanting to sound any major alarms on a day he left Alexis Sanchez back in London.

On the other, he’s not concerned enough for a side which has won two matches since Dec. 2 and now sits five points back of the Top Four.
Without further ado, here’s his opening salvo after the loss (from the BBC).
“We were 1-0 up and suddenly we lost two goals and we don’t know where they came from. It is very frustrating. Overall we have to look at it in a very objective and harsh way we made mistakes we should not have made.
“The team that fights against relegation will fight and you cannot afford any concentration mistake.”
This seems a bit too simplified, but: Bournemouth worked really hard, and can you believe they scored a couple times?
It’s easy to see how frustrating it must be to hear these words if a member of the #WengerOut brigade, and it’s becoming increasingly tricky to give the benefit of the doubt to Wenger.
