Arsène Wenger believes his players will learn a valuable lesson from their draw with Wolves: don't let your guard slip.

Arsenal took a deserved first-half lead at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday through Gervinho but were pegged back before the break when Steven Fletcher nodded past Wojciech Szczesny.

Wenger watched his team lay siege to the Wolves goal after the break but, ultimately, he feels they paid the price for briefly losing their focus.

"The only problem in the game was when we were 1-0 up and we became a bit too easy and we conceded a goal in the way that we should never concede," he told Arsenal Player.

"That was where we were guilty but apart from that you cannot fault the players. They tried absolutely everything, they gave everything and their goalkeeper made the difference.

"The lesson that we learned is that when you look to completely control the game, if everybody is not focused then you can still be caught out."
