Wenger: 'We are not incisive enough'

Last updated : 28 November 2004 By Chris Parry
Asked how he felt about Chelsea being five points clear at the top of the table he said:

"I am not really too concerned about what Chelsea are doing, I am more concerned with us getting back on track. We have to regroup and find our way back to our best form."

He went on to say what he felt was wrong with today's performance:

"We are not incisive enough. I do not think there is too much wrong but when you lose the errors are highlighted. Liverpool played very well. They were very organised, quicker to the ball than us and although their winner was brilliant from their point of view, for us it was a bad goal.

"We conceded a goal direct from their goalkeeper's kick, from one end to the back of our net. That is not good enough from our point of view.

"Things are not going our way, but we have to show we are good enough to cope and handle the fact that everything seems to be going against us. Maybe we looked fatigued, we had to play with nine men in midweek and maybe it took a lot out of us but Liverpool were sharper and it is difficult to find an explanation.

"When we equalised I felt we were going to go on and win the game, and sometimes it nearly happened. But they were focused, disciplined, very direct but also efficient."
