“We were very weak in some departments and Man Utd had a lot of class. You always feel humiliated when you concede eight goals,” said Wenger.

“It was a terrible day for us. A combination of weakness in certain areas and we collapsed physically in the second half”

“I know in England when you lose a game, signings are a solution, but first we have to get our players back. We had 8 out today”
