EPL: Wenger reveals why Arsenal lost 2-1 to Newcastle United

EPL: Wenger reveals why Arsenal lost 2-1 to Newcastle United

'People in England are conscious of the fact that experience in the Premier League is important and, what is more, you go to other competitions and other leagues and win as well.

Off the pace in terms of a Champions League place, salvation for Wenger and the club could come in the shape of the Europa League, with the victor handed a spot in Europe's top club competition for next season.

The Gunners' strong home record-they've won 13 of 17 league matches at the Emirates this season-has still not been enough to stave off the empty seats, likely because of the situation they find themselves in due to their poor away form.

'When you commit so many team mistakes, away or home, you get punished and Sunday proved that.

"If I was a Tottenham player, I would have looked at that and thought: "wow, we're a million miles away". Unfortunately, it has affected our results'.

After the equaliser the game became very even as both sides had spells of possession but Arsenal could have retaken the lead just before half-time when Callum Chambers put a shot wide from close range after Mustafi had headed the ball into his path from a great cross from Granit Xhaka.

Jonjo Shelvey's rich vein of form continued as he displayed a range of passing which helped to keep Newcastle in a game which might otherwise have run away from them. "It devalues the good things we have done with errors".

"It is not the first time we were 1-0 up away and we didn't get anything in the game".

In the Europa League we have a semi-final to play so we need to make sure we are ready. We need to continue that.

For years the Gunners appeared content with treading water by settling for a top-four finish each season, but this term they could sink to new depths.

"We are in a very hard moment because everybody else has a big advantage".
