London, Oct 26(ANI): Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that his Gunners players should have registered an easy win in the Premier League game against West Ham United to close the gap on Manchester United.
The Gunners were on track with first-half goals from Robin van Persie and William Gallas, but they failed to keep the lead and conceded two goals at Upton Park. A win would have put Arsenal a point behind second-place United with a game in hand.
"You need to get points when you deserve to get them - and sometimes when you don't deserve to. Today we never got the three points when we deserved them - and that means we've not made the maximum of what we should have done," The Sun quoted Wenger, as saying.
"It's tight and open at the top and that's why I'm convinced that it'll be close until the end," he added.
Wenger further said that it was a very frustrating game for him, as even though the Gunners were in control throughout the game, they had to be happy with a draw.
"It's very frustrating, but West Ham did fight right until the end. I never had the feeling that the game was won at 2-0, even though we were completely in control. We conceded two goals from set-pieces. Generous ones," Wenger said.
"West Ham are very happy tonight and I understand that - but the free-kick and penalty were extremely generous. I don't think that either should have been given, but we cannot influence the decision of the referee," he added. (ANI)
