Wenger: 'My feelings are a mixture of disappointment and relief'

Last updated : 17 September 2008 By Chris Parry

"My feelings are a mixture of disappointment and relief. We were a goal down with three minutes to go and we didn't lose. We had chances and didn't take them and then we just didn't create enough in the second half.

"Then, at any moment, you cannot afford to make a mistake and we did.

"At 1-0 down at least we found the resources to fight back to 1-1 because the players gave it everything.

"The penalty was very, very harsh because we are convinced the guy took Sagna with two hands and went down but the referee called it and what can you do about that. I was not angry, I just wanted to understand how they calculate the extra time because it's a mystery to me how, in a game like that, with players going down and substitutes, you still only get three minutes of injury time.

"Even during injury time one player stays down and still it's only three minutes."

"That's the biggest domination we've had here for a long, long time so we are frustrated because we wanted the three points. But maybe it will be a good point. We lacked a bit of a killer instinct when we were on top and maybe that's what we can get out of this game."
