'We have to fight and move forward'

Mathieu Flamini

Mathieu Flamini spoke to the media after Arsenal’s defeat to Chelsea. Below is a transcript of what he said:

on the Premier League…We are fighting for the title and it is frustrating. We gave it everything and it was not easy today against 11 men but what can I say?

on the red card…I don't want to comment on the red card. The referee is responsible. We will see about it later.

on the positives…We can think positively.

on his chance before half-time…I thought I could take it with one touch but it was going very quickly so it was hard.

on challenging…Of course. It is a long run and we still have to fight and move forward. It is only a game but today is frustrating and a disappointment.
