Wenger – We were down to ten men for both Wigan goals, but the defending was horrendous

Arsene Wenger admitted that the Gunners were awful in the second half against Wigan, but he also bemoaned the fact that Mikel Arteta’s injury left Arsenal with just ten players on the pitch when the first two goals went in although he was in no doubt that the defence was definitely at fault as well.

Wenger said after the game: We made it difficult for ourselves because we had quite a good start but we defended horrendously for the first and second goals. Everybody involved was included for the first and the second goals. On top of that we conceded a second goal with 10 men on the pitch.
