Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny admitted manager Arsène Wenger was “angry and disappointed” after The Gunners’ miserable start to the season continued at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Wenger’s men slumped to their fourth defeat in seven league games in the north London derby, and Szczesny—who also took the blame for conceding Kyle Walker’s winner on Sunday—said the Frenchman was as downbeat as he had ever seen him in the aftermath of the encounter.

“Of course he was angry,” said Szczesny after the game. “We came out with no points from White Hart Lane. He was one of the most disappointed I have ever seen him, I think.

“Everyone is disappointed and angry because not only have we lost the game but we should have at least drawn it and possibly could have won it so, yes, there was some big disappointment.”

The 21-year-old goalkeeper added: “The second [goal] I am very disappointed because I shouldn’t get beaten from that type of distance so the second one I will blame myself.

“There was a lot of movement on the ball and I reacted too late. I got a touch to it but it wasn’t strong enough to keep out.

“If you make good saves of course you want to get something out of the game. I made a few good saves but you give nothing to the team because we lost the game. So, it all doesn’t matter, really.”
