Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that his side can still finish top of their Champions League group, but admits that they have ‘a lack of creativity’ to blame should they fall short yet again.
The Gunners played out a 2-2 draw with Paris Saint-Germain at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday evening, leaving the two sides locked on 11 points apiece in Group A.
Arsene Wenger’s team, unless a miracle happens, will now almost certainly find themselves facing one of Barcelona, Napoli, Atletico Madrid, Monaco, Juventus or Borussia Dortmund in yet another tough last-16 clash.
A disappointed Wenger said: “We got a point. It might not be enough, but you never know. We lacked creativity. We gave a lot, and we came back from 1-0 down to lead 2-1 but then gave away an own goal.
“We had good spells but we could not dominate. My concern is that we were 2-1 up and allowed them to come back at us. It’s difficult to understand how easily we gave away a goal at a corner.
“We lack something in our creativity but we got a point. It might not be enough but you never know.”
Arsenal face Basel in their final group-stage outing, facing a sixth second-placed finish in succession should results not go their way in two weeks’ time.
