Arsène Wenger understands why some Arsenal fans voiced their frustration after Saturday's draw at Aston Villa - because he was not happy either.

The Frenchman had to settle for a point at Villa Park and, by Wenger's admission, his players lacked their usual sharpness during the 0-0 draw.

A handful of travelling supporters made their feelings known towards the end of the game but Wenger believes that the negative reaction has been exaggerated.

"That some fans are not happy when you draw 0-0 at Aston Villa I can understand because I am not happy," he said. "I want to win the game as well.

"The only thing you can say in the modern media service is that the extreme opinions are picked and sold like a majority - and that is not the case always.

"That means those who shout the loudest are usually presented because they are interesting and easy to sell. But they do not always represent the majority of opinions.

"I do not share the view that always the minority is presented as if everyone thinks like them."
