Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has hit out at the supposed ‘November curse’ after his team’s victory over Ludogorets Razgrad.
Gunners fans have long thought that the club does suspiciously poorly in the month, and they have a fair bit of evidence to back up their claims.
However, Wenger clearly doesn’t buy in to it, and was bullish after coming from 2-0 behind against the Bulgarian side.
‘I don’t know who said we don’t win games in November but I can assure you we’ve won a few,’ said the 67-year-old.
Supporters were worrying that the curse had struck again when Ludogorets went 2-0 ahead in the first 15 minutes, but their fears were quickly allayed when Granit Xhaka and Olivier Giroud dragged it back to 2-2 before half time.
Gooners did then have to wait until the 87th minute for the goal that would seal their qualification though, when Mesut Ozil saved their blushes with a stunning solo effort.
While the result means that the north Londoners are now safely through to the last-16, they still have a fight on their hands with PSG for first place and an easier draw in the next round.
