Wenger: 'I do not want to go too much into individual criticism'

"The pitch was very difficult for us and it was difficult to pass at top speed, so it was almost more down to character and resilience - and we have shown plenty." 

"Mathematically we lost two points, but psychologically I think we won a point, because when you are 2-0 down with 20 minutes to go, you cannot be too unhappy with this comeback."

"I said that no matter happened today, it would not be over, but for the team it was important not to lose.

"With what has happened to us recently, you wonder how we would have recovered if we had lost the game today."

"The pitch was not at fault when we conceded the goals - we were at fault on the first and the second, we cannot blame the pitch for that."

"I do not want to go too much into individual criticism. The players involved in that second goal know what it was about and what was good was the reaction the whole team has shown and their fighting spirit.

"It will be interesting through to the end because we are ready to focus and ready for a fight."
