Wenger on the Fulham Defeat, Key Decisions & More

by on January 3, 2012

Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger spoke about Arsenal’s defeat to Fulham yesterday, it was a frustrating performance from the Gunners. They should of scored more than one goal in the first-half after wasting good opportunities, Johan Djourou got sent his marching orders in the second-half after getting a second yellow card. Former Arsenal youth player Steve Sidwell equalized for Fulham and then a late Bobby Zamora goal put Fulham in to the lead.

Wenger on key decisions in the match.

“I think it was 100 per cent a penalty on Gervinho from Senderos in the first half. The referee had a massive influence on the game like that. We have played many games recently where if it had gone our way we would not have been in trouble and would have stayed with 11 on the pitch.”

“You want the right decisions in a game of that importance. But I do not want to speak about that anymore. We had the chances to kill the game off before that and to win. I think it’s very unlucky for us to lose the game with 10 men. When you see the game today that we finished with 10 men, it’s very difficult to take. That makes a massive difference when you have played 48 hours before. It’s too difficult.”

The Frenchman on the possible penalty call.

“We [should have] had a clear penalty in the last game against QPR with a clear handball, a penalty at Man City and we had a penalty at Villa Park.”

“You should not ask me, I don’t know.”

Lastly he spoke about losing Djourou through suspension.

“I think we have done well being short, we have lost three left backs, two right backs.”

“What can you do? You cannot buy 10 full backs to make sure you have one in case of injury.”
