Arsene Wenger has said that despite the hectic fixture list in January, he really wanted to go further in the Carling Cup and to lose how we did was very frustrating.

Speaking to arsenal.com Wenger said we were in this game to play the games, so even though January will be a little easier for us now, he’d have much rather we progressed to the semi final and competed for the trophy.

‘Fixture wise, you can say it’s easier, but in fairness I would have preferred to play the games. You are in this job to play the games. It was very tight against City, the regret I have is that we put the effort in and we lose a game with our opponents having one shot on target. That is always frustrating to take.’

Well I admit it’s not ideal really is it.
