Arsene Wenger Admits Defeat ‘Difficult To Swallow’

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted that the defeat at Bolton was difficult to swallow.

Bolton substitute Tamir Cohen headed a last-minute winner to end Arsenal’s hope of winning the Premier League title.

The 2-1 loss ended Arsenal’s 16-game unbeaten run – but a succession of draws, including a 3-3 in midweek at North London rivals Spurs and a 1-1 at home to Liverpool last weekend, had allowed United to open a gap at the top of the table.

The French tactician told Sky Sports : “It is difficult to swallow, the way we lost,”.

“We had chances to win it but didn’t take it and in the end we were caught in the way we feared today, from a corner.

“The week we have just had summed up our season – lots of quality in our game on Sunday, Wednesday and today but not enough rewards for our effort. We could have had nine points but we got two.”

Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea are now the only realistic challengers to United, standing six points behind the leaders having played the same number of games.
