Danny Welbeck was forced off after 73 minutes of our goalless draw at Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
Arsène Wenger was asked for the latest on the striker, and his team’s general performance, after the match. Here’s what he said in his post-match press conference.
- 'We responded exactly how I expected'
- Bellerin - We really fought for that
- Wenger on Lacazette and the late red card
He has a groin problem. I don’t know how severe it is but it looks like a 'good' groin problem, not an easy one.
on the game…
I felt it was a game with total intensity, where two teams really went for it and was a battle all over the pitch. We responded well in domains where we were questioned, you know, and I like when the team shows that kind of response. Overall I feel it’s a deserved point and with a bit more freedom maybe, less inhibition, we could have really won this game with one or two goals difference. But overall for us it was important at least not to lose today and you could feel that in the team in the last 20 minutes that we played a little bit with that in our mind.
on what’s changed from performances at Stoke and Liverpool…
I believe at Stoke we had a good performance on the football front. We had 77 per cent possession, [could have had] three penalties. We were a bit lucky we didn’t score. I agree, the result was very disappointing but the performance was not so disappointing. When you’re a football player, there’s only one thing that matters - the next game and how you respond to it. That’s what we did today.
