Arsenal Buckled Under Pressure

Although Arsenal has fought hard all season to stay in the second position on the top of the Premier League, Javier Hernandez said Arsenal buckled under the pressure of chasing a treble.

Arsenal played in a Carling Cup final, the FA Cup fifth round, the UEFA Champions League second round and also provided the biggest threat to Manchester United’s title charge as they clashed at the top.

A cup final defeat to Birmingham was followed by Champions League and FA Cup exits to Barcelona and United.

The Gunners have fallen to third place in the Premiership behind Chelsea – and now trail Man United by nine points.

“I believed Arsenal would be our main opponents – they have excellent players,” said Hernandez.

“Perhaps the pressure damaged them, those defeats against Barcelona and Birmingham in the Carling Cup final.

“But United is a team that never knows when it is defeated. Our spirit and history creates fear in our rivals.

“If we are 2-0 down with 20 minutes to go, people know we can come back. That doesn’t happen at other clubs.”

Arsenal host champions-elect United on Sunday, requiring a win to keep their faint title hopes alive.

“They will be difficult to beat so once again we must put in a big effort,” said Hernandez about Arsenal.

“We also have to play Chelsea. I know they will fight until the last minute to protect their title but the outcome is in our hands.

“If we win these matches we win the Premier League.”
