With Barcelona on the horizon it is understandable that Arsene Wenger made so many changes to the team that ultimately drew 0-0 with Hull City last Saturday, however the side select produced more than enough chances to win the game.

Despite a couple of fantastic saves from the Hull keeper, the Arsenal forwards didn`t threaten the goal too much despite having a huge amount of shots on goal.

Arsenal vice-captain, Per Mertesacker, says described our finishing as disappointing.

“We had a couple of good chances and we couldn`t keep the pressure as high as we wanted, especially in the second half,”

“We had enough chances to win, but we were unlucky at times. Overall it was disappointing, especially our finishing.”

“We allowed [Hull goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic] to make some decent saves because we were not that decisive.”

“It is down to us, we produced a good defensive performance but overall in the final third, that little final pass at the end, we always rushed ourselves at times to finish so we need to learn from that.”

“Overall, we missed a bit of something today and we have to come back quickly in three days time. We have a very important game, the first leg against Barcelona, and we will see the fans again, it will be another buzzing night but it is up to us how we perform.”
