There were certainly plenty of positives from our draw at Chelsea, but Arsene Wenger still left Stamford Bridge disappointed not to have recorded our first away win of the season.
We had plenty of first-half chances on Sunday, but just couldn't make the breakthrough in a team display much improved from our last Premier League away game, at Liverpool.
- 'We responded exactly how I expected'
- Bellerin - We really fought for that
- The latest on Danny Welbeck
- Wenger on Lacazette and the late red card
"I’m happy with the performance and disappointed with the point," the manager told Arsenal Player. "I would like to put in front the performance, the response of the players, the togetherness and fighting spirit we have shown, which was questioned a lot. That was our No 1 target today, to do that.
"We had plenty of chances and even in the end we would have created more chances had we had a history of winning games. In the end we played with some inhibitions because we didn’t want to lose.
"We wanted to win the game but I believe as well that it was important today not to lose, for the future of the team.
"Somewhere we had those inhibitions in our head and in the reflected attitude."
