Wenger: 'We cannot afford to drop points any more'

Arsene's post-Chelsea comments...
"The referee gave a lot of free-kicks today, and some much less than the Coquelin one. It's frustrating. It doesn't mean we should have conceded the goal but, in the big games, these decisions have big implications."
"He could have given Ramires a yellow card as well."
"We had a similar start to Man City last week, didn't defend too well and gave them too much incentive. We didn't play well in the first half, but we were much more dangerous in the second half, with a different attitude.
"Unfortunately we didn't make enough of our corners, free-kicks and the chances we created. That's why we lost the game. It's very damaging for our position in the league and difficult to swallow."
"The table is the table. We have lost two big games in the last week, and that's very damaging for us. We cannot afford to drop points any more if we want to be in the top four."
"The team has fantastic quality and spirit, but we come into the game when we're 2-0 down. At the moment, that's worrying. In the big games, once you start 2-0 down it's very difficult.
"I feel we were not well positioned on the pitch. We were stretched, gave them too much room to play and didn't defend tightly enough. We were always allowing them to play wherever they wanted."
