Arsene Wenger spoke to Arsenal Player after his side's 2-0 defeat to Chelsea. This is what he had to say:
on the result being hard to take…Yes, a point was in it. It was down to us not to make defensive mistakes and use the dangerous situations we had and I think we were a bit short on both sides. We made a defensive mistake at the moment when we couldn’t afford to do it, and also when it was 1-0 and we were all over them I felt it was important not to concede a second goal. We did produce a good performance and both keepers had no saves to make.
on lacking a clinical edge…I felt the referee was very lenient with them. They broke up all of our counter-attacks without being punished.
on the positives…Yes, there was not a big difference today but we did not get the result that we wanted.
