Arsenal Slips at Hull City

Once again, the Gunners lost points to a side against whom Arsenal was expected to pull of an easy victory. The high-flying Arsenal should have posted an easy victory over newly promoted Hull City, but the Gunners struggled against Hull at home and lost all three points that would have kept Arsenal at the top of the point table. However, Gunners failed to continue their momentum they got in their 6-0 Carling Cup victory over Sheffield United last week.

Arsenal was put ahead thanks to Cesc Fabregas at the beginning of the second half, but Cousin and Geovanni scored to ensure a historic victory for Hull City against Arsenal. Now, the question is that what makes Arsenal lose point very often, even when they are at the top of their form. Having seen the impressive 6-0 midweek victory over Sheffield by a seemingly reserve side, it was really very hard to think that Arsenal would slip up against Hull City at home.

I do not think that recruiting one or two more players would solve the problem, because this team has talent, skill and quality and that’s all needed to become a balanced side. Then what is the problem? Well, I think, Arsenal needs more maturity and experience as most of the players are talented but young. Actually, I do not blame Arsenal because this squad needs to play together for two or three more seasons and after that, I believe, the young troop will start to pay back with dividend. Till then, it is necessary to hold on patience and keep faith on Wenger’s young boys.
