Wenger: We conceded easy goals

The Gunners are five points behind Leicester

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger blamed his side’s naivety in defence for their disappointing 3-2 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Wenger’s men dominated the possession in the opening 25 minutes, but found themselves 2-0 down after 32 minutes and the Frenchman admitted that his side found it hard to recover.

"We played with a lot of intensity, I cannot fault our commitment and spirit and desire but I feel we conceded too easy goals,” said Wenger.

Many commentators suggested before the game that it was a must win for Arsenal in their fight for the title, but Wenger believes his side are still in the race and says they will continue with a good mentality.

"I think after the game we have to be positive and prepare for the next one. We have another game on Wednesday, they come thick and fast and you want to keep a good mentality.

"We did fight until the end, we had a lot of the ball but I think we could avoid the goals with better concentration.

"I am disappointed because we lost the game but we will focus on the next one. This is a fight where you go to the next one and aim to come back even stronger."

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, on the other hand, was delighted with his side’s performance as they moved to within three points of the top four.

"The performance and the result [was pleasing], when you are playing against one of the best Premier League teams and can play with such ambition and performance.

"We played very high in the first half, that is risky against a team like Arsenal but we changed things in the second half and were very compact."
