Why Arsenal losing to Man Utd was positive – Arsene Wenger

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says positives can be taken despite his side losing 2-1 to Manchester United.
Wenger took a makeshift squad to Manchester with the focus on Thursday’s Europa League semi-final second leg against Atletico Madrid.

It meant a club debut for Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos while youngsters Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles also started.

And the Gunners produced a creditable performance, only losing in stoppage time thanks to a Marouane Fellaini header.

But Wenger felt the display will give Arsenal’s new manager reason for optimism.

“It was a good performance,” Wenger told Sky Sports.”It reflects a little our away season. We had chances and on the counter we did not use our opportunities as well as we could have.

“It was very positive for the young team, but it is very disappointing in the dressing room and I think in the last 20 minutes you can see that some of the players are not used to that pace and intensity.

“It is good to see them in this atmosphere – who can win challenges.

“You can know their level, but you see what they can produce. It was hard to name a bad performance in our side.”

Mesut Ozil has congratulated his Arsenal team-mates after their 2-0 win against Chelsea, despite being left out again by manager Unai Emery, uniquesports reports.

The German has not featured for the Gunners since a 1-1 draw with Brighton on Boxing Day and was an unused substitute as goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny gave the Gunners a vital win against their top four rivals.

“Congratulations to the whole team tonight.

“Well played, Gunners,” Ozil wrote on Instagram.

Arsenal’s win was somewhat dampened by the injury sustained by Hector Bellerin.

The Spaniard went over without contact and had to be stretchered off in the second half with a suspected knee ligament injury.

Ozil wished the right-back a “speedy recovery”.

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has revealed his pre-match team talk, before their 2-0 win over Chelsea on Saturday evening, uniquesports reports.

Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny scored the goals in the first half, as the Gunners claimed all three points at the Emirates.

“We want to find the same performance, ideas, mentality whether we’re playing home and away.

“I think every player contributed with work. This attitude to be together when we have the ball, find the space and find the moments to attack.

“We spoke before the match about running more than them as this team run a lot. We were speaking about running to cover the ball and transition very quickly.

“It’s difficult to keep this pressing for 90 minutes and the match changed in the second half. The clean sheet today is very important and to show our supporters that we can be optimistic,” Emery told Sky Sports.
