Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has taken “full responsibility” of Saturday afternoon’s drubbing at Stamford Bridge.

‘The Gunners’ have now been humiliated at their top four rivals this season with the 6-0 thrashing by Chelsea coming in the wake of their 6-3 loss at the Etihad Stadium and the 5-1 loss at Anfield in February.

“This defeat is my fault, I take full responsibility for it,” said Wenger after the defeat.

Arsenal have now failed to score a goal against Chelsea this season, after losing 2-0 in the Capital One Cup and drawing 0-0 at the Emirate Stadium.

And Wenger is yet to win a game against A Jose Mourinho-led side in eleven attempts and have now suffered their worst defeat against their London rivals.

“I don’ t think there’s too much need to talk about the mistakes we made. We got a good hiding today. It’s how we respond now on Tuesday night [against Swansea] and the best way is not to explain too much the mistakes,” he added.

Chelsea came up with two goals in the opening seven minutes of the tie. A Samuel Eto’O fifth minute opener, Andre Schurle’s superb strike, Eden Hazard’s spot-kick, Oscar’s brace and a Mohammed Salah left-footed shot sealed victory for ‘The Blues’ on Wenger’s 1000th game in charge of the North Londoners.

“Yes, of course it’s one of the worst days [in my career]. It’s over after 20 minutes and it’s a long game after that. You don’t prepare all week to experience that kind of experience,” the Frenchman continued.

Arsenal’s only meaningful shot at goal was clawed out by goalkeeper Petr Cech 4 minutes into the game.

Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs was mistakenly sent off, after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain kept out a goal-bound effort with his palm.

Wenger said on Gibbs’ sending off: “I believe it was handball but the referee hasn’t seen it. The ball went out and I think it’s Chamberlain who touched the ball. I don’t know who gave indication to the referee that it was handball but he has certainly not seen it. Of course. it’s a huge disappointment today but we want to win the next game now.”
