Wenger disappointed with the Wigan result

He said:

"The most disappointing thing is we didn't score and did not create a lot of chances in the game. I felt at the start we had good opportunities but did not use those and in the second half it was more difficult to play because the game became more physical and they were on top of us.

"They didn't create much as well but we have got a good chance to play them at home and go through. I feel as a team offensively we didn't create enough but that was also down to them."

He was asked whether or not he would bring in more experienced players for the second leg at Highbury:

"At the moment we are short of players and will stick to the team I have unless we have some recoveries. There is not much choice and the championship and Champions League are our priorities. We will still try to pick a team to win and go through."
