Arsene Wenger says Arsenal made mistakes they should not have made as they went down 2-1 against relegation-threatened Bournemouth.
Despite Hector Bellerin putting the Gunners ahead in the second half, the Gunners squandered their advantage as Callum Wilson and Jordan Ibe netted twice in four minutes to turn things around for the home side.
Speaking to the BBC after the game, Wenger said he was frustrated by the collapse.
“We were 1-0 up and suddenly we lost two goals and we don’t know where they came from. It is very frustrating. Overall we have to look at it in a very objective and harsh way – we made mistakes we should not have made.
“The team that fights against relegation will fight and you cannot afford any concentration mistake.”
On whether his decision to take off Calum Chambers and put on Aaron Ramsey made things worse for his side – the home side netted just seconds after the switch of Arsenal’s formation – Wenger added:
“One-all was not good enough for us. We had to win the game. I think if you look again at the second goal we made many mistakes and that is what we paid for.”
