Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has revealed the extent of Arsene Wenger’s anger after Liverpool put five goals past the Gunners on Saturday, Sky Sports has reported.

Arteta added he had never seen Wenger so angry in his time playing under the long-serving Frenchman after Liverpool were out of sight by half-time. Arteta scored a consolation penalty in the second-half.

“We know we need to improve and face those games in a different manner because after 19 minutes we were 4-0 down and it was like a car crash,” Arteta said.

“The manager was really upset at half-time. That's normal because it wasn't good enough for this football club. It was the angriest I have seen him.”

Arteta moved to the Emirates Stadium from Everton in 2011, becoming the club’s vice-captain under Thomas Vermaelen. He has made more than 100 appearances for Arsenal, scoring 14 goals, having spent six-and-a-half years at Goodison Park.

The defeat to Liverpool leaves Arsenal second, behind Chelsea by a point, and above Manchester City by the same margin.

What happened at Liverpool for Arsenal is an eye opener and should teach Wenger a lesson. Wenger has been a long standing manager in football and no one can question his credentials but some of us who know the rudiments of football do have occasions to fault his team selection especially when Arsenal is playing big teams. Wenger will either be too defensive and no attack at the opponent's goal area [MAN U] or too attacking leaving the team vulnerable at the back [Man C and Liverpool]. The former is even better because if you don't score and no goal is scored against your team, you share the points.Jose M of Chelsea will rather share the points if he knows he cannot win a match than open the flood gate for goals as Wenger does sometimes. To me, that shows better management than conceding ridiculous goal margin and getting angry thereafter.

Wenger should know that, he is incharge of Arsenal, whatever happens in the pitch the blame will always hunt him. He do not want to buy players to make sure the other players gets rest. If he does not win anything this season it better to leave. He has failed to up-lift Arsenal for 9 years now. His love for money is the main problem. He should change his attitude if he is to make a progress with Arsenal. We dont want an excuses anymore 9 years is tomuch. Why he is getting players who are being side lined by other clubs. How can you buy a player who is 31 years and you expect to do well.
