Arsene's post-Sunderland comments.

"We played with a good spirit, were serious and we put the effort in, but we lack sharpness and fluency at the moment to be dangerous in the final third."

"The few chances we had, we could not convert them."

"Sunderland defended very well for the whole game, and we lacked something - sharpness, also quality and accuracy in the final pass."

"The formula didn't work with three strikers up front and we were not well balanced, we did not create enough because they blocked our midfield."

"It is difficult not to be pleased with Cazorla because he played on Wednesday night, the whole game in Puerto Rico. All the chances were created by him, basically."
