Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has stated that his side’s performance in losing 2-1 against West Brom was a nightmare yesterday.
The Baggies put a dent in the away side’s title ambitions at The Hawthorns, coming back from a goal down to win the clash against the Gunners.
Arsenal had more than enough chances to win the clash, with Santi Cazorla missing a penalty as the final insult to injury.
Wenger has stressed that the game went just about as bad as it possibly could have and was not complimentary about his side’s performance.
“It was a very bad afternoon for us,” The Guardian quote Wenger as saying.
“We had 70% possession, scored an own goal, missed a penalty, gave away a goal on a set piece and missed open goal chances – that’s perfect to make the afternoon a nightmare.”
Arsenal will be even more frustrated by their loss after Manchester City were beaten at home by Liverpool, with a missed opportunity for the North London club to make a statement in the race for top spot.
The Emirates Stadium outfit would have went top of the league had they won, but instead find themselves in fourth place, two points adrift of surprise leaders Leicester City.
