Wenger admits worry as Arsenal fall ten points behind Chelsea


Arsene Wenger is worried about Arsenal’s current league standing.

The Gunners fell to a second defeat of the season on Saturday evening, when a Grant Holt goal was enough to earn Norwich City a 1-0 win at Carrow Road. Earlier in the day, Tottenham Hotspur, for whom fans of the Emirates Stadium club would usually relish seeing beaten, were dismissed 4-2 by Chelsea.

This means the Blues now hold a ten point lead over Wenger’s side, with just eight games of the season gone. And whilst it is still early days, the French coach admits the current position is a worrying one for him.

"The gap is very unpleasant," he said. "We had an opportunity that Tottenham could win and we could win, and we both lost. That of course makes the gap a lot bigger. You cannot say you do not worry about that.”

The result on Saturday was Norwich’s first win of the campaign, and the Gunners will hope to avoid being so charitable when Queens Park Rangers, who are also winless, visit North London next weekend.
