Arsene Wenger: Arsenal boss surprised by Manchester City's start

 Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he feels “disappointed and guilty” after dropping to fourth in the Premier League having being held to a 0-0 draw against Southampton at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners failed to claim all three points against the Saints after an inspired display from goalkeeper Fraser Forster shut out Arsene Wenger’s side.

Manager Arsene Wenger says he feels “disappointed” after failing to secure the win, with his side now dropping to fourth in the Premier League having being overtaken by arch rivals Tottenham.

Speaking after the game, Wenger said: “We put the energy level in and created chances. I cannot fault the team on that front. It is not only luck. I don’t believe too much in luck.

“We feel disappointed and guilty. In a game like that when you create chances you want to win. We had the chances to win it. But their keeper kept them in it.

“You have to always think the opponent will play well and despite that still score. We had all kind of chances and it looked like it would come. But sometimes you lose these games.”

Wenger was quick to defend his side and denied the “same old Arsenal” tag that some associate with them in regards to dropping points around this time of the season.

Wenger added: “Look, I don’t know why you say same old Arsenal. For 20 years we have been at the top of the Premier League.

“At the moment we have to say that we have dropped points but we have to keep fighting and believing.”
