Arshavin: Wenger lost for words after another draw
The Gunners have now drawn their last three home league matches 0-0 against West Ham, Sunderland and Fulham.
With the north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur also failing to see either side break the deadlock, Wenger's side lie a distant 16 points behind leaders Manchester United and - more significantly - six points adrift of fourth-placed Aston Villa.
And the Gunners' Russian playmaker has revealed that Wenger was left speechless following his side's latest league disappointment against Roy Hodgson's Cottagers.
“He said nothing in the dressing room but we all understand what was in his mind without any words spoken by Arsene Wenger," he said on his personal website.
"If we do not win the next few games, the Champions League will be far away from us.
“I think in the last match we gave the opponent a little more space to counter. Therefore, in certain moments of the game opponents were able to have more ball possession.
“It seems that we are trying to play, trying to score, but it is not happening. On the other hand, we are confident that soon goals and victories will come.”
