Wenger: 'We were not at our best today'

"They defended very well, they were organised not to concede. It was a very good defensive performance, their minds were completely on defending. We were not at our best today but gave absolutely everything.

"Credit to Portsmouth, they made it difficult for us. They played in one half of the pitch. I don't think offensively they had a special performance, they played with 10 players at the back and in the end they got the maximum they could from this kind of game."

"We would prefer to be at the top but it is very tight - only one point."
