Wenger: We were poor and made big mistakes


Arsene Wenger says his side were ‘very poor’ as defensive howlers helped Swansea City to a 3-1 victory over Arsenal.

The Gunners took the lead courtesy of Nacho Monreal’s fourth goal of the season but squandered their advantage within a minute when Sam Clucas netted.

A ridiculous miskick by Petr Cech was pounced on by Andre Ayew as the home side turned the screw after the break before Clucas made sure of the points.

Speaking to after the game, Wenger was incensed by his side’s abject display.

“I felt defensively we were very poor and made big mistakes,” he told the BBC. “It’s better not to talk about the second or third goals.

“Swansea were sharp, disciplined and hungry. Unfortunately I believe we were not good enough, I believe we were not disciplined enough.

“I don’t want to talk about second or third goals.”

Wenger was also asked about the possibility of Arsenal signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, spotted arriving at London Colney this afternoon, and about Olivier Giroud’s proposed move to Chelsea.

“We will know more about that tomorrow morning,” he said of securing a deal for the Gabon international.

“It’s a possibility,” he said of Giroud’s exit.
