Wenger: 'The focus today wasn't good enough'

"It was very frustrating. The crowd pushed us on, but we were punished for losing concentration on the set-piece. We thought it was going to be too easy, but we didn't create enough overall.

"We were not sharp enough and they defended well. It's as simple as that."

"Every game is important so it's hard to say which is the crucial month, but today we lost two points we shouldn't have lost. I'm confident the team will re-focus because they are very disappointed. The focus today wasn't good enough."

"The last excuse you should look for when a team that has won many games this season doesn't win is to say you should buy players."

"I don't think we missed Kolo either: Philippe Senderos wasn't involved in the set-piece for the goal. We just didn't defend it well and that's how we were punished."
