Wenger: 'I am more frustrated by the result than the performance'

Arsene's post-Wolves comments.

"It was the kind of day where maybe we were not relaxed enough, maybe we wanted it so much, that we were a bit too in the 'wanting zone' and not enough in just the 'technical zone'.

"There are going to be a lot of twists and turns. When you have the luck of the results yesterday and you play today, you can take advantage of it, that is where the worrying thing is because in the season you have to take your opportunities."

"We just have to keep going and take the positives out of the game.

"It is frustrating, but I am more frustrated by the result than the performance and the spirit. You cannot fault the attitude or the commitment or the desire to win the game."

"Their 'keeper had the game of his life, Wolves fought like mad and well done to them. I don't know how many shots we had on goal and how many they had, but it was the kind of game that if you play it 20 times you win 19 and you draw one - and it was today, which we could not afford."

"What can I do? It looks like for us, to get a penalty we will have to fight very hard. I have seen the handball at Manchester City and it was definitely handball.

"I personally am responsible for the performance of my team, not for the referee, I have no influence. Despite that we could have won the game today and that's what we have to look at."
