Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admitted that he was both “angry and disappointed” after his side were beaten 2-1 by Manchester United in the English Premier League on Saturday.
An own-goal from the Gunners’ defender Kieran Gibbs and the Red Devils’ forward Wayne Rooney’s chipped finish gave the visitors the victory at the Emirates Stadium as the hosts that night dropped ro eighth in the league table.
“Both,” replied the French manager after being asked if he felt angry or disappointed.
“I wasn’t angry with the players – I have a lot of respect for the energy they put in the game and the spirit they show.”
“I’m just angry because the players do not get rewarded and our fans do not get rewarded for the result that was just there for the taking today.”
“We have suffered against United before but we cannot say that we suffered against them today.”
“If you look at the number of games recently, the number of shots our opponent has and the number of goals we concede, that is quite a continuity at the moment.”
