Arsene Wenger has snapped back at the critics who questioned his decision not to replace Mathieu Flamini and Gilberto with a central defensive midfielder this summer.

Wenger quipped: “We had no player we really wanted and for now we have no regrets.

“You cannot explain Gael Clichy’s own goal here by the fact we haven’t an experienced player in midfield. We were not, as a team, sharp enough to dictate the pace and be dominant in the fight.”
