“It is still possible of course to qualify but it is difficult to swallow losing a game like that,” he said.

“We lost it on a lack of defensive concentration and bad luck. They had four shots on goal and we conceded three goals.

“The turning point at 2-2 is we give them a goal again straight away. If it stays 2-2 for five minutes we win the game.”

Wenger refused to criticize goalkeeper David Ospina, whose error led to the Greek side’s second goal.

“A goalkeeper can make a mistake but it doesn’t explain why we lose a game. It happened to Petr Cech earlier in the season.”

“It took us a while to get into the game because we had a very intensive game on Saturday.”

“I must say we put the effort in and everything went against us tonight.”
