Although Arsene Wenger claimed Jack Wilshere had received tough treatment at SOL . Martin O'Neill defended his players.

Martin O'Neill: "We've got to make this an uncomfortable place to come.

"We've got to aim for that sort of intensity.

"We didn't single out Wilshere, that certainly wasn't the plan.

The fans were behind us, even tough we didn't get anything out of the game.

"The very best teams give the ball away but if the crowd feel there is an intensity about your game, I honestly believe they will forgive those things and I thought that's how it was today."
