Wenger on...the game
"I am disappointed because we played quite well, especially in the first half. I did not think we deserved to lose today."

Wenger on...the sending off
"I feel if, in that game, Gilberto is sent off then I need to re-adjust my eyes."

Wenger on...the reaction to the dismissal
"When we were down to 10 men, the second half became much more physical, less football. It was difficult. We created a great chance when Van Persie missed the ball on the edge of the box."

Wenger on...the tactics used
"I am disappointed because we lost the game but as well people have made a reputation against us that if you go physical into Arsenal then they don't win."
