Wenger: 'Some players were not at their best'

"We lost a game and we can only fault ourselves because we didn't score.

"Some players were not at their best and we gave a goal away on the only situation where Sunderland could score one today, a set-piece, and that sums it up well.

"Rather than focusing on any individual, I believe it's more down to the fact that we made a big mistake on the corner because the game was there for the taking in the last 20 minutes, but of course, 1-0 down makes it more difficult."

"It was very harsh to lose the game because Sunderland did not create a lot. But we did not create enough chances either and there was a lack of penetration.

"They were organised and defended very well and we lacked the sharpness to make a difference. In some positions we were not strong enough.

"It is a massive setback because you need consistency to win a title. And today we were not capable of doing that and it raises question marks."
