Arsene Wenger has expressed his frustration following Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to Chelsea in the Premier League. 

The Gunners were beaten for the second time in a week as goals from Marcos Alonso, Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas handed all the three points to Antonio Conte’s men.

And after watching his team fall 12 points behind the league leaders, the Arsenal manager has admitted there is not a lot to be happy about.

“I think it’s very disappointing because we were very dangerous early on and we didn’t take our chance, and after that we conceded a goal that was a foul,” Wenger said after the game

“After that we put Chelsea in a position that they like to be in – on counter-attacks. On top of that I’m not happy with our performance overall. We lacked decisiveness, we lacked belief in what we did, and even if it was a difficult game I think we have not done well enough.

“Individually we were not at our best and in a big game that makes it very difficult. We lost balls in areas where you cannot afford to lose the ball.

“We came out for the second half and straight away we gave a goal away in a position… already against Watford we gave a goal away like that, with people marching through our midfield and defence. And of course at 2-0 it is too difficult.

“We have to regroup and respond very well in the next one.”
