Arsene Wenger was left to rue two crucial moments in our Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City at Wembley.
The first was the early chance we missed when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was tackled just a few yards from goal, and the second was when Vincent Kompany doubled City's advantage.
"I felt we were unlucky to be 1-0 down at half time, we made a defensive mistake and missed an unbelievable chance at 0-0 so it was frustrating," the Arsenal manager told Arsenal Player.
"In these types of games, playing against a side of that calibre, to be 1-0 down is difficult. When we came out, we didn't start the second half well and were a bit unlucky because for me the second goal was 100 per cent offside and then it was difficult. We tried to come back, to change the system, but it was very difficult.
"[The second goal] was a changing point in the game and after that they were in control. They were nervous in the first half and overall I think the second goal played a big part in the final result.
"We had the chances and I am very disappointed but it made me think about playing Barcelona in Paris [in 2006] when we missed the chance in the first half. Against a team of that quality it is important to take your chances straight away."
