Speaking on Sky Sports, the former Manchester United full-back criticized Wenger for building teams that seem to lack the power of his three Premier League title-winning sides between 1998 and 2004.
“It is important not to lose the big games and get something out of them, which we have managed to do. Belief? It is misheld belief”. “I would like to give credit to Liverpool as well”.
“The first thing for us was not to concede and then after that to finish (chances). But anyway, against West Ham [United], I changed in the second half and brought Cazorla back to central midfield”.
“Look, I don’t know what that has to do with arrogance”. “They refused to sell us [Luis] Suárez so I can not feel too much sympathy for them”. I leave judgement to everybody else, the assessment of the quality of my work.
“Alexis has that desire to go forward and provoke chaos in the defences because he has a go at you, to run at people and that creates danger”, said the Arsenal manager. Are they good reasons? “I think I have enough experience and intelligence to know when it’s right and when it’s wrong”.
But the full-back atoned with the kind of equaliser that belied his previous tally of a single Palace goal, fizzing a 20-yard shot past Petr Cech from James McArthur’s lay-off. “If we can go there and perform like we think we can and keep to our game-plan we’re confident we can get a result”.
“It is an impossible job, ” said the Arsenal manager, according to the club’s official website.
“We tried to push for the goal but it didn’t quite happen”, Ramsey said.
Liverpool have kept just one clean sheet in their last 18 Premier League matches against Arsenal.
The Costa Rican has been heavily linked with a permanent transfer out of north London, but Wenger has revealed that he would be pleased if the player chose to extend his stay with the Gunners. As Liverpool, marshaled by the excellent Philippe Coutinho, pummelled the makeshift defensive pairing of Callum Chambers and Gabriel in the first-half, Wenger would have been fearing the worst.
