Wenger: 'In the end we got punished for our mistakes'

Arsene's post-Norwich bleating...
"Here the whole season we have got zero penalties. It is absolutely amazing, because you see other clubs who have got 10. I don't know why the penalty was not given, we have to accept the decision of the referee."
"It is more than frustrating because we were very poor in the first half, not switched on. The quality of our first half was absolutely not at the level we wanted to play in a decisive game like that.
"In the second half we did very well and created at least 10 chances, but again we did not take our chances. On top of that we gave them a third goal in a situation that was absolutely unbelievable. In the end we got punished for our mistakes.
"We have to analyse the reasons why we were not sharp enough in the first half. There is no obvious reason because we prepared normally as we always do, and maybe subconsciously we would win it.
"Norwich played well, you have to give them credit, they did well."
"It leaves us with one mathematical thing - it is not in our hands anymore. We have to wait for the results to see where it leaves us tomorrow night. We knew that if we didn't win today, that would happen, that it's not in our hands."
