Wenger: 'We were caught a bit naively on the second ball'

"You know that in the last five minutes of a Champions League match, anything can happen. They have thrown everything forward and felt they could only score on a set-piece, and that is what happened.

"It is frustrating because we looked closer to scoring a second than conceding, but credit to them, they did fight well and went until the last minute."

"We are still learning. You do not need to give a free-kick away on an offside in the last minute. We were caught a bit naively on the second ball, that can happen sometimes on the first one that you lose the header, but on the second one, their player was completely free to score."

"We were largely in control, but as long as you are not two goals in front, that is the problem. You can score with just one kick from the goalkeeper into your box. That is just football."

"To me, it looked like a penalty, but I would have to watch it again. The referee was even closer than I was."
