Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has said that his side were “unlucky to lose” against Everton after falling to a 2-1 defeat at Goodison Park.
Arsenal took the lead through a deflected Alexis Sanchez free kick, but goals from defenders Seamus Coleman and Ashley Williams gave the Toffees all three points.
Wenger told BT Sport: “It was a very physical game, we faced many physical challenges and that disturbed our game but we were a bit unlucky to lose as well.
“We had chances in the first half, especially from Mesut. They defended well, they played a cup game, and at the end of the day it was two defenders in their team who scored.
“They were a bit scared at first but they got their confidence. We did fight, I cannot fault that.”
