There is not much you can say after the agonising 6-0 defeat to Chelsea, especially as it was Arsene Wenger’s 1000th game as manager.
The Frenchman didn’t come out for the post-match press conference, but he finally spoke to the BBC before leaving Stamford Bridge. Here is his statement, and he is obviously not very happy.
“This defeat is my fault, I take full responsibility for it.” Wenger said. “I don’t think there’s too much need to talk about the mistakes we made. We got a good hiding today.
“It’s one of the worst days in my career. It’s over after 20 minutes and it’s a long game after that. You don’t prepare all week to experience that kind of experience.”
“It leaves it the title chances in a very bad situation,”
“But we want to respond. We had two difficult away games as Tottenham and Chelsea.
“If we had played two draws we’d have two points. Having won one we have three points.
“But today is a huge disappointment, of course. When you don’t turn up in a game of this stature – nobody takes that easy.”
A huge disappointment is an understatement! Where do we go from here?
