Arsenal : Wenger frustrated after Liverpool comeback

Arsene Wenger says he is frustrated after Arsenal conceded a 90th-minute equaliser in the 3-3 stalemate away at Liverpool, but believes the results could strengthen his side.

The Gunners went down twice by goals from Brazil international Roberto Firmino, but Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud restored parity for Arsenal before half-time.

The Wednesday game at Anfield was charismatic that produced six goals, four of the goals under just 25 minutes with a late equaliser from Joe Allen who spent just eight minutes coming on as a substitute to replace Emre Can after Olivier Giroud puts the Gunners up front on 55 minutes.

Alot of clear cut chances were wasted by Arsenal and boss Arsene Wenger was left frustrated as his boys could have grab all points at stake.

“I am frustrated by the result and not disappointed by the performance. We started a bit apprehensive in the first 20 minutes, a bit on the back foot and went 1-0 down, came back convincingly, went 2-1 down, showed character again, made it 2-2 and then 3-2.

“The frustration comes from the fact that at 3-2 we had three situations where we should have made it 4-2 and made bad decisions.

“The frustration then comes from conceding a goal in the last minute. We have shown again great character to come back with a point.

Despite Arsene Wenger’s frustration, he believes the game’s positive outcome serves as a motivation for his boys.

“We have to transform the frustration in the dressing room into even more motivation. There are a lot of positives. What happened in this game should strengthen our belief.”

The Gunners are top of the table with 43 points same as Leicester City but with a better goal difference. They will travel to Britannia Stadium to face Stoke City on Sunday in a quest to keep their title credentials afloat.
