Do Arsenal NEED to win the League Cup to boost confidence?

The following question was asked of Arsene Wenger following the 3-3 draw at home to Fulham. “Arsene, why do Arsenal seem so fragile this season?”

Wenger obviously not liking this question replied that he didn’t share that opinion, but then added that on the day Arsenal were defensively fragile.

On Tuesday Arsenal led their Champions League game at Schalke by two goals, only to allow the Germans to regain the initiative with a goal right on half time. Schalke equalized in the second half, with Arsenal having to thank Mannone for preventing a worse scoreline. Things were not much better at the weekend with Arsenal once again squandering a two goal lead, this time against a Fulham team which had failed to win on 20 previous visits to north London.
