Wenger: 'We weren't completely switched on'

Last updated : 28 September 2008 By Chris Parry

"We had the chances to win the game. The commitment was on the high side but we weren't completely switched on to the level you need to be to win the game.

"Human beings are not machines. Perhaps subconsciously we thought we would make it. After we went 1-0 up, we were a bit careless in not pushing on to score the second goal.

"We don't know how costly it could be but they were committed and it was a good lesson for us. We now know that if our attitude isn't right, we can lose games.

"It was a bit similar to Fulham. You can never afford defeats. We had a good chance to go top of the league but at the end of the day, if we had had the same level of concentration as Hull we would have won the game."

"There's nothing to celebrate, even if we had won," he added.
