Arsène Wenger believes Arsenal should be happy with their efforts against Marseille in the Champions League this season.

Wenger’s side took four points from their two fixtures against the French giants, claiming a last-gasp victory in Marseille before battling for a point at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.

Results so far have left Arsenal in control of Group F and Wenger says his players have plenty to be pleased about.

“It is satisfactory, yes,” he told Arsenal Player. “Let's be positive as well, the win over there was a bit lucky in the last minute and here we were a bit unlucky but overall four points out of six is a good result.

“We are in a very tough group but we are top of it at the moment. I feel on chances we deserved to win the game, although we lacked a little spark.

“We were on such a high on Saturday [at Chelsea] that maybe we were a little fraction off what we can do and sometimes in the Champions League that is not enough.

“But overall we still had a decent performance - a good defensive performance - and we sustained the pressure until the end. We had opportunities to win the game but we only took a point.

“It keeps our run going and that is very positive. We don't concede defeat and that is what we continue to do.”

The full interview with the boss is now available on Arsenal Player.
