After his team lost their second consecutive Premier League game, Arsene Wenger admitted that he is genuinely worried that his side will not make the Champions League.
The north London side lost 2-1 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and, following their 2-0 defeat to Man City at the Emirates a week ago, the Gunners sit sixth, six points away from a top-four place.
“It will be a tough challenge for us to make the top four," said Wenger. "We need to learn to be much more efficient with the quality of game we use.
"The table is the table. We have lost two big games in the last week and that's very damaging for us. It's very damaging for our position in the league and difficult to swallow.
"We cannot afford to drop points any more if we want to be in the top four. That's a concern."
The Frenchman continued: “Once again we didn’t start on all cylinders. We had the first chance in the game, and didn’t take it.
“Once we were 2-0 down we came back with a great second-half [performance] and a great spirit. We rushed our decisions in the final third and didn’t make enough of our corner and free-kicks in the end.”
