Following yesterdays game at the Emirates between Arsenal and Wigan Athletic both bosses, Arsene Wenger and Steve Bruce faced the press and gave their verdicts on the game, lets see what the had to say:

Latics boss Steve Bruce:

‘I cannot really remember coming to a place like this and having so much of the game.

‘We really took the game to Arsenal and the manner in which we did that absolutely delighted me.

‘On another day we would have taken something from the game – and we deserved to.

‘We just needed a bit of luck, and better delivery at times in the last third.

‘I am disappointed for my players but they gave everything they’ve got. They came and gave Arsenal a hell of a game today. ‘


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger:

‘It was a nervy game because we were 1-0 up but couldn’t get the second goal. We played a bit with the handbrake on because we were so desperate to win it.
‘But I must praise the team because they kept their focus and pushed it through.

‘Eboue played for longer than I wanted him to. His concentration dropped a little bit and when the crowd got on his back that was difficult to see and accept.

‘He has to come off as he had lost a lot of confidence – he would have been even more unhappy had he stayed on, given the ball away and cost us a goal.’
