Playing at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday (09/11/2014) night local time, Arsenal was winning with a goal by Alexis Sanchez. However, Swansea were able to reverse the score thanks to two goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Batefimbi Gomis.
Substitutions were made Gary Monk yielded positive results including inserting Gomis replacing Wilfried Bony. Gomis scored just two minutes on the pitch.
“It’s hard to explain how we can be left behind after the time to excel. We controlled the game, but they did not give up and we failed several times a tackle in midfield and paid the price. That’s where we compete,” said Wenger, the BBC.
“We had no trouble, we have the best opportunities. Playing here is always difficult and the game was full of tactics,” he said.
Winning first and eventually lost or overtaken perceived opponents is not the first time Arsenal. In the middle of the Champions League last week, the Gunners had a 3-0 lead over Anderlecht before the game ended in a 3-3 draw.
“Yes, I am worried we are constantly being broken. Right now there are other things we need to worry about other than being broken, ie the distance between Arsenal to Chelsea. You should be able to win in a game that can be won. If you want to compete to win the Premier League, you have little be realistic, “the 64-year-old coach was shut.
Currently Arsenal are in sixth position with 17 points or behind 12 points from Chelsea, who are at the top.
