Arsene Wenger declared his frustration at Arsenal’s inability to convert their good performances into points.

The Gunners lost 2-1 to Manchester United on Saturday night despite the north London side boasting 61 per cent of possession and having 23 shots on target.

And Arsenal manager Wenger admitted he found it troubling that the Gunners were failing to make their dominance count after losing their third game of the season.

“It’s troubling at the moment, because we cannot get the wins we want and there’s a big discordance between the quality of our game and the points we have,” said Wenger.

“It was one of the most one-way traffic games I have played against Manchester United, but they took advantage of our mistakes.

“It’s disappointing because we put a lot of energy into the game and there was a lot of quality in our game, but in the end nothing came from it.

“We had five very good opportunities in the first-half, but their goalkeeper was the man of the match and we just couldn’t finish. In the final third we just weren’t efficient enough.”

Wenger reiterated that United didn’t deserve to beat the FA Cup holders.

“If we had played a bad game and Manchester United were by far the better team, you can say yes [they deserved to win], but today that was not the case.

“It was a game we could have won easily.

“Now we had to keep faith and our belief because there is a lot of quality in this team, we just need to convert our domination into goals.”
