Arsene Wenger was keen to take the positives from our defeat to Swansea at home on Monday evening after our unbeaten run came to a drastic end in a game we dominated completely, Sky Sports reports.
Having played most of the game in Swansea’s half, just how we came away from the game with no points is beyond belief, which now means we’ve failed to score in successive home games in the Premier League.
Wenger was adamant that he was happy with some of our play and wants to take the positives from our offensive performances in patches.
“Overall it’s frustrating but there are a lot of positives in tonight’s game,” Wenger said after the game.
“Unfortunately, this type of game you play 20 times you win it 19 and lose once. Tonight was that one.”

The boss was pressed further regarding the positives he saw in a game like that and rather vaguely touched on our attacking display.
“The rhythm, our domination and the quality of our game was in patches top quality.”
This result is a big blow in our attempts to finish second and we suddenly have a fight on our hands to avoid fourth place and an awkward play-off game to qualify for the Champions League in August.
Sunday’s game against Manchester United has now become a huge fixture in order to ensure we finish in the top three this season.
Let’s hope the boys fix up before next weekend, as a fourth place finish would be pretty much unforgivable considering the position we were in before last night’s defeat…
