Arsene Wenger: The reason why we were not capable of catching Leicester City


A lack of consistent results is the reason why Arsenal failed to win this season's Premier League, manager Arsene Wenger believes.

The Gunners host Aston Villa on the last day of the Premier League as they will try to at least finish in second place above rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Claudio Ranieri's Leicester City is the only team to reach the 80-point mark this season with the Gunners 12 points behind the Foxes before today's games.

"It was a strange season," Wenger said.

"We've finished the season disappointed because we felt we had the chance to win the championship. Of course we are frustrated but Leicester have had consistent results and the rest of the division have had ups and downs.

"Is it down to the fact that Leicester were a surprise package? Is it down to the fact that they only played one competition? Certainly there's some explanation there, but if you only analyse the technical numbers, there's no rationale.

"That's why you have to say they have been absolutely remarkable and you have to congratulate them.

"It's a missed opportunity but it's a missed opportunity for everybody.

"If you look at the predictions for the start of the season, Chelsea were first and Manchester City were second. Other people can feel missed opportunities too. In the predictions, people can say they were wrong.

"What is important is that we learn from that. If the team only loses three games they will win the league, and that's what Leicester did."
