Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson has said rsenal are out of the Premier League title race despite their 2-0 win against the Magpies at St. James’ Park on Sunday.
Mikel Arteta’s side cut Manchester City’s lead to just one point following the win at Newcastle.
But the time wasting antics by the Arsenal players at St James’ Park saw them come under fire.
Following the defeat, Wilson told The Footballer’s Football Podcast he does not understand the antics by the Arsenal players since they are out of the race.
“Always the day after the game it’s still fresh. For me you’re still tired and the body from physically running around giving what you’ve given in the game, mentally and emotionally you’re still drained as well.
“We’re getting there slowly but I think that game reiterates we’ve still got a way to go because at the end of the day, we had chances, we had so many chances that could get us back into the game. At 1-0 you take one of those and it’s a different game but we didn’t.
“They game with a game plan which was to frustrate us, frustrate the fans. Obviously it’s frustrating when you’re in the moment and yeah we’ve done it in the past when you’re that team playing away from home and trying to grind out a result. So be it.
“They’ve come and done the same thing and it is frustrating. To be honest the title has already gone anyway so I don’t know what they’re playing at.
“You know what, they’re a good team and the quality shines through. Clinical when they needed to be, scored their goals and you can see why they’re up there to be honest.”
