Arsene Wenger says he feels sorry for Arsenal supporters after the Gunners lost 2-1 to Manchester United.

Arsenal came close to breaking the deadlock in the first half but Jack Wilshere wasted the home side’s best chance from close range.

We’re not efficient in the zone where the games are won offensively and defensively

And Gunners left-back Kieran Gibbs gave United a helping hand when he deflected the ball past his own goalkeeper in north London.

Red Devils captain Rooney doubled the home side’s lead in the 85th minute before Olivier Giroud scored a late consolation strike.

“There was lots of energy,” Wenger told Arsenal’s website. “We produced a game of quality and energy and in the end we didn’t get the reward. Manchester United had two shots on target and we lost the game – that’s what it was.

“All the rest was one of the most one-way traffic games I’ve seen against United. I feel so sorry for our fans and the energy level the players put in not to get a win today because it’s so disappointing.

“We have to look at ourselves as well because we made a big mistake for the first goal and we were too impatient after when we were 1-0 down just because we wanted to come back quickly.

“We’re not efficient in the zone where the games are won offensively and defensively. Unfortunately their goalkeeper had a great game as well.”
