Arsenal Manager, Arsène Wenger, has said fatigue might have played a part in his team’s inability beat Sunderland Wednesday night.

Speaking with newsmen after the goalless draw Wenger said, “You can say that we dominated possession and we lacked a bit of sharpness in our movement, in the way we prepared our chances and in our finishing as well.

“Physically, it was an intense game on Sunday from what we have analysed, and we were a bit jaded tonight. We haven’t scored in the last three games at home and the fact that we couldn’t score played a big part in our spontaneous attitude when finishing.”

Wenger admitted that his team showing fatigue ahead of the FA Cup final is “a little bit of a concern” with almost two weeks to go.

“Have I got any nerves about finishing third? No. We want to win our game on Sunday, that’s all. We want to prepare to win the game on Sunday. You could see that some players are a bit [tired].

“We played our 56th game of the season tonight and some players have given a lot. We still have time to recover for Sunday and prepare well for the FA Cup final. What is important now is that we win on Sunday.”
