‘When you have given everything, it’s difficult’

Arsene Wenger was understandably unhappy after West Brom were awarded a late penalty to snatch a draw against us at The Hawthorns on Sunday.

Afterwards he spoke to Arsenal Media and this is what he said:

on digging deep to go 1-0 up…
Yes, we had a big handicap as West Brom had five days to prepare and we had three, honestly the schedule is unfair and we also had to deal with an unfair decision. You can talk but it will not change anything, we can just say the players gave everything.

on the performance overall…
We played brilliantly at Crystal Palace but you could see today that the legs were a bit heavy, and that we more had to show mental strength and desire to do it. If you go in the dressing room, the players are very tired but also very disappointed because they face real injustice. When you have given everything it is difficult.
