Arsene Wenger met with the press after Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with PSG in the Champions League on Wednesday night and explained why he thought his side could not win.
Speaking to the press, Wenger said, “To give an own goal on the second goal is disappointing. We were playing against a good side but we weren’t, for 90 minutes, technically fluent enough to dominate completely our subject.
“Tonight, my concern is that we were 2-1 up and didn’t maintain the pressure on them and allowed them to come back. It is difficult to understand how easily we gave a goal way on the corner.
“Especially at the moment, I feel that we lack something in our creativity, still there is a great spirit in the squad, we got a point, certainly it will not be enough but you never know.
“As I told you before the game, I saw exactly the same, let’s try to finish the job well and try to win the game [against Basel].”
Winning the group is now no longer in Arsenal’s hands. Because of the head-to-head rule, PSG now top the table and facing Ludogorets at home on the final day when Arsenal travel to Switzerland means they are favourites.
Not that it matters much this season anyway.
There’s every chance that the team that wins our group will get a massive side (Bayern Munich, anyone) in the next round.
