Wenger left frustrated by Arsenal draw

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was frustrated after his side failed to win again in the Premier League, as they drew 2-2 at home to Hull City, Sky Sports has reported.

The North London club took the lead after 13 minutes when Alexis Sanchez cut inside from the right an fired a precise low shot into the far corner, but Hull equalised just four minutes later in controversial circumstances as Mohamed Diame appeared to pull back Mathieu Flamini before lifting the ball delicately over the advancing Wojciech Szczesny.

Steve Bruce’s side then went ahead in the first minute of the second half as Tom Huddlestone was given plenty of time to pick out Abel Hernandez with a deep cross, with the in-form Uruguayan heading home after escaping the attentions of Per Mertesacker.

However, Arsenal’s late pressure paid off as Danny Welbeck found the corner of the net from Sanchez’ pass to give them a share of the points, but the result leaves them 11 points behind leaders Chelsea and with just two wins from eight Premier League matches.

After the game, a disappointed Wenger said: “We got a point but we had 80 per cent possession. It is a very disappointing result. “We were unlucky with the referee on the first goal, but on the second goal we can only blame ourselves.

“We came out of the dressing room with a lack of focus and gave them the lead straight away. It was difficult. I cannot fault the effort or the heart that we had in the game. The defensive concentration was missing on the second goal and when you make it difficult at that level you cannot give the goals away like that.”
