Arsene Wenger insists he “could not question” Arsenal’s desire in defeat to Manchester United. We really, really can.
The Gunners were beaten 3-2 by an inexperienced United side at Old Trafford on Sunday, leaving them five points behind Premier League leaders Leicester with 11 games remaining.
The loss represents Arsenal’s second in a week, following their 2-0 Champions League reverse at home to Barcelona.
Discussing his side’s performance on Sunday, Wenger claimed he could find no faults.
“We were strong enough but they stopped us a lot with little fouls. That was very frustrating,” Wenger said. “I could not question our desire or commitment at all.
“We lost three points but we have to show we’re up for the fight and give absolutely everything in our next game.
“Things can change quickly, but only if you keep going and keep believing. We are in a fight where we can show that we have great character and great mentality.”
