Wenger angry and disappointed after loss

Arsene Wenger has admitted he is both “angry and disappointed” after he watched his side lose 3-1 to Manchester United.

United took an early lead through Antonio Valencia, before Lingard made it 2-0 shortly after the 10 minute mark. From there, it seemed the game was dead in the water, and despite a surge of Arsenal attacks, they failed to make pressure count.

Alexander Lacazette pulled one back for Arsenal in the second half, but a second from Lingard condemned the Gunners to defeat.

However, it was Arsenal’s defensive errors that were the cause of their own downfall, and Wenger was not impressed with certain aspects of the game.

“At the back we didn’t start well at all,” Wenger told Sky Sports. “We put ourselves in a very difficult position. Despite that, we had enough chances to come back.

“When you have 33 shots on goal in a game of that stature, it means our dominance was top class. Our spirit was outstanding, the quality of our performance was outstanding.

“But I’m angry and disappointed because at the end we have nothing to show for it. In games like that you have to be efficient.”

The result doesn’t make much of a difference to the Gunners’ league standing, with them sitting 5th – a point off the top 4.
