Arsène Wenger believes Arsenal were punished unfortunately for every one of their “weak moments” at Ewood park on Saturday, loosing their third game already this Premier League season.
As always Wenger remained optimistic after the game, drawing on some positives from the match, but blamed the midweek trip to Germany, after what has become Arsenal’s worst start in 58 years.
“The positives are that we created many chances and, away from home, that is not easy. We dominated the game but in the weak moments we had we were not strong enough to resist. We didn’t have many weak moments in the game but, every time we had one, we paid for it.
“We gave a lot at Dortmund [on Tuesday]. It is difficult to go away from home in the Champions League and go away again on Saturday morning. You could see in the second half that it had an influence. But it is the same for everybody and we have to deal with that.
“It is two different results because, on Saturday, I felt it was a lack of sharpness. It was a bit unfortunate as well because we had two deflections in our own goal. But overall we never looked completely secure enough.”

Wenger needs to make some sort of change, whether it’s a change in formation or giving other players such as Chu Young Park, Miyaichi or Oxlade-Chamberlain a run, as it’s not just this season that has been awful but our whole 2011 has been terrible. We have only won 9 games in the Premier League since the turn of the New Year.
What do you think Wenger should do?
