Arsene Wenger reacts to the end of Arsenal’s unbeaten run
Arsene Wenger has his say on the end of Arsenal's unbeaten run in the Premier League this week
Arsene Wenger has played down the significance of Arsenal’s unbeaten run coming to an end on Wednesday night against Southampton.
The north London side were beaten 2-0 by the Saints at The Emirates in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup to end their unbeaten run, which had stood since the opening weekend of the campaign.
It was a disappointing performance from the Gunners in front of their home fans and Wenger was clearly disappointed by the performance of his team.
However, the Arsenal boss has moved to play down the importance of the Gunners’ unbeaten run coming to an end against the Saints in midweek.
Speaking in an interview with Arsenal’s website, Wenger said: “I don’t think I can moan about the momentum in the Premier League, that is important for us.
“I knew that in the League Cup that could happen, but it’s disappointing to lose the game more than the run we have.
“The run we want to keep in the Premier League, but I am very disappointed tonight because there are questions on important things. You know, when you turn up in the first 45 minutes we played.”
Arsenal now turn their attentions towards their Premier League clash with West Ham United at the London Stadium on Saturday night.
The Gunners are currently fourth in the table and three points behind leaders Chelsea after 13 games of the new season.
