Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has expressed his sympathy to the Arsenal fans, after his team failed to beat a poor Manchester United side on the day, our writer Femi reports.
The home side squandered a host of goal scoring opportunities in the first half and were made to rue them as Kieran Gibbs own goal and Rooney’s finish was enough to snatch all three points for the visitors in what was Arsenal’s worst start to a League campaign in 32 years.
“There was lots of energy,” the manager told Arsenal Player.
“We produced a game of quality and energy and in the end we didn’t get the reward. Manchester United had two shots on target and we lost the game – that’s what it was.
“All the rest was one of the most one-way traffic games I’ve seen against United. I feel so sorry for our fans and the energy level the players put in not to get a win today because it’s so disappointing.
“We have to look at ourselves as well because we made a big mistake for the first goal and we were too impatient after when we were 1-0 down just because we wanted to come back quickly.
“We’re not efficient in the zone where the games are won offensively and defensively. Unfortunately their goalkeeper had a great game as well.”
