“I would have committed suicide”- Wenger

Arsenal's Arsene Wenger controversially claimed that he would have killed himself had Davide Zappacosta's late shot sealed three points for Chelsea on Wednesday.

A sparkling second half of football at the Emirates Stadium ended in a 2-2 draw between the London rivals.

The visitors hit back after Jack Wilshere's first Premier League strike in over two years with goals via Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso, before Hector Bellerin restored parity late on.

There was one more twist in the tale, however, when Zappacosta crashed a long-range shot against the bar.

"I would have committed suicide," Wenger told reporters after the final whistle when asked what he would have done if that effort went in.

"It was a great football game, we have shown great mental resources, I knew the last 20 minutes would be tough."

The draw leaves Arsenal rooted in sixth place in the Premier League, outside the Champions League standings.

But while Wenger is annoyed to see his side down the table, he believes that the Gunners' play merits better fortunes.

"It’s very frustrating. We have to look at ourselves as well," he added.

"Our performances have been top quality but we have not had the results we could have had. We have not been gifted luck." (GOAL)
