Arsene Wenger appears unhappy over Arsenal draw against Tottenham with the French tactician admitting that three key factors affected his team.
Arsenal took the lead but through an own goal from Kevin Wimmer but the Lilywhytes bossed the game and were unstoppable in midfield.
Wenger is now without a win in five attempts against Spurs and admits his side’s fatigue, along with their defensive nervousness and a lack of creativity in attack, played a factor in the 1-1 draw.
‘Overall we had dangerous situations in the first half but we didn’t make the most of it. Sometimes that was because the final ball was not good, sometimes that was because we were offside and shouldn’t have been,’ Wenger told Arsenal Player.
‘In the second half we dropped a little bit physically and it became a little bit difficult for us. On top of that the penalty looked a bit soft, but you have to swallow it. After that we gave everything but we didn’t find the resources to score.
‘I felt it was a bit down to nervousness at the back too. Sometimes we have room to play more. [Sacrificing fluency is] certainly a price we pay to play in the derby. Spurs defended well but we lacked a bit of creativity and technical quality in the final third to be a real danger.
‘We are disappointed because we didn’t win but overall we are in a strong position
‘It’s what we make of it now and how consistent we will be.
‘We have been very consistent until now so, even if we are frustrated now, let’s try to transform that into positive energy when the Premier League restarts.’
