Press conference

'We have nothing to show for our performance'

Arsene Wenger was left to rue defensive errors at the start of the game when he looked back on a thrilling - but fruitless - encounter with Manchester United.


Here’s what the boss said in his post-match press conference:


on the performance…

I think the quality of our performance was good but we were not decisive enough. I believe at the back we didn’t start well at all and we put ourselves in a very difficult position. Despite that, there were enough chances to come back and I don’t know if you have watched many top-level games, but when you have 33 shots on goal in a game of that stature, it means that our dominance was top class. I’m angry and disappointed because at the end we have nothing to show for it and even at 2-1 we made another mistake at the back that made the game even more difficult.

on being upset with the penalty decisions…

I am. I don’t know, I have to watch it again but I thought it was [a foul on Welbeck], yes. We’ll see.

on the referee possibly evening things up during the game…

Maybe, I don’t know every situation in the game. Last night I watched Napoli v Juventus on television and you can see top-class referees.

on being unhappy with the United bench…

I am not unhappy with their bench, they defend their game, I defend my game and sometimes it is heated, that is part of it. That’s absolutely normal, I’m just disappointed and I absolutely agree with it that [despite] the quality of that performance we do not have anything to show for it.
