Wenger admits Arsenal were poor

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stated that his side lacked desire after their 1-0 defeat to Norwich City at Carrow Road, BBC Sport reports.

Grant Holt’s goal was enough to give the Canaries their first victory of the season and leave the Gunners ten points behind league leaders Chelsea. Wenger was disappointed with his side, especially after their promising performances at times this season, and admits that Norwich wanted the victory more than Arsenal. The Gunners will be looking for a quick turnaround in their next game, a Champions League fixture with Schalke on Wednesday night.

Wenger said: “You can always find excuses when you lose a game, but, overall, you have to stand up and say Norwich wanted it more than us. I believe we have to put that behind us and focus on our next game and realise that what we produced against Norwich was not good enough.”

Wenger also confirmed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will not face Schalke after picking up an injury. The England international was introduced as a substitute in the second half, but played only nine minutes before picking up a ‘kick on the hip’, according to the Arsenal manager.
