Manager Arsène Wenger of Arsenal was Tuesday night to talk about the mental strength of his team. The ‘Gunners’ came on a visit to Bournemouth with a 3-0 behind, but dragged a point out of the fire: 3-3.

“It was a physical and mental test for us. For the latter, we are in any case successful, because we have a clever piece shown resilience. Mentally we are very strong,” said Wenger afterwards on the site of the club.

Arsenal looked already after 58 minutes against a 3-0 deficit, but knew in the last twenty minutes, three times to score a goal by Alexis Sanchez, Lucas Perez and Olivier Giroud (penalty kick).

Wenger thinks that the bad start of the competition, purely due to the fact that his team one day less of rest than Bournemouth.

“I don’t want every day to play football, but against a team that is no longer peace can take than we. That is why I would only consider that fair. Against Bournemouth we saw that we were having difficulty with the fact that they are fitter.”

By the late hit from Giroud, who also has two assists-kept, escaped Arsenal to the third uitnederlaag in a row. Wenger, however, was that his team still had earned against the number nine of the league.

“In the end we got some good chances, but we kept the head, not cool. In addition, we were defensively vulnerable today. Therefore, it is actually still frustrating that we have not won.”
