Arsène Wenger says the last seven days have encapsulated Arsenal's season - a campaign full of promise that will ultimately end in disappointment.

A last-minute Tamir Cohen header effectively finished Arsenal’s title challenge as Bolton recorded a 2-1 victory on Sunday to end the Gunners’ 16-game unbeaten run in the Premier League.

The defeat concluded a miserable week for Wenger and his side that saw crucial points dropped on three separate occasions.

“We have taken two points out of nine and we should have taken nine. That, a little bit, sums up our season,” said the Arsenal manager.

“We were leading against Liverpool until the last second, we were leading against Tottenham and on Sunday we were close to winning and we lost the game. It sums up what has happened since January.

“I do not want to blame the players. I believe the players have an outstanding attitude [and] it’s a shame they are not rewarded. But we have to accept it and go on.

“It’s very unlikely [that we can win the title] but the size of the Club means we have the pride to fight and that is what has to inspire us.”
