Arsene Wenger on the Norwich draw and how he intends to replace Alexis Sanchez


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has praised Norwich City after they held his team to a 1-1 draw at Carrow Road.

The Gunners have only won one of their last five games in all competitions as they failed to move closer to the top of the Premier League table.

And the Frenchman will have more injury concerns to take care of after Alexis Sanchez, Laurent Koscielny and Santi Cazorla all suffered injuries against the Canaries.

"That it was a difficult game," Wenger said.

"We played against a Norwich side that was at the top level physically and focused. They were well organised and they played every time with 10 players in their own half, and we were not incisive enough.

"Maybe the turning point of the game was maybe we dropped a little bit after scoring straight away and allowed them back into the game. In the second half I felt we had to dig deep to get though as we were a bit jaded and we lost players.

"Cazorla played on one leg and of course we played Koscielny at the start of the game so it was, I would say, a fair point for Norwich and it was on the injury front a bad afternoon for us.

"At the moment we are short as [Theo] Walcott is not there, [Danny] Welbeck is not there, [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain is just coming back. I can take a gamble on one and in case I can take a gamble on another one.

"[But] we have [Aaron] Ramsey. I can understand you worry for us, but trust us, we will be there.

"We have to go through that spell. We had a bad spell of a few games now with Tottenham, West Brom and today we only have taken two points but we are still not far and going through a bad spell and not being far.

"It is not enough but at least we had an opportunity to come back."
