Why we lost to Manchester United – Wenger

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has blamed his defenders’ lack of focus, for their 3-1 defeat to Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Speaking after the game, which saw their 12-game home unbeaten run end, Wenger said he was “angry and disappointed”.

The Gunners were 2-0 down after 11 minutes, after centre-backs Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi both gave the ball away sloppily. Although Alexandre Lacazette pulled one back, Jesse Lingard netted a third for United.

“I don’t know if you’ve watched many top-level shots, but when you have 33 shots on goal in a game of that stature, it means our dominance was top class. But I’m angry and disappointed because in the end we have nothing to show for it,” Wenger told a news conference.

“I think the quality of our performance was good. We were not decisive enough. And I believe that at the back we did not start well, at all. And we put ourselves in a very difficult position. Despite that, there was enough chances to come back.”
