Wenger regrets late draw

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger admits that he was livid after seeing his side throw away a 2-1 lead against Liverpool who were down to 10 men to earn just a solitary point at Anfield.

Goals from Mathieu Debuchy and Olivier Giroud looked to have sealed all three points for the Gunners following an opening goal from Philippe Coutinho but Martil Skrtel scored in stoppage point to ruin Wenger’s day.
And while the Frenchman admits that the final scoreline was a fair reflection of the game, he admits that he was disappointed to see his team draw a game they were winning.

“It was an intense game – we have the regret to concede a goal to a set piece in the last minute but overall it was fair result,” he told Sky Sports.

However, the Gunners played much better against the Reds this time around than their previous fixture at Anfield where they were thrashed 5-1. And Wenger says that it was the events from last season that resulted in the team start the game very slowly.

Wenger admits that the start was very sluggish and it played a role in his team’s inability to dominate possession like they usually do.
