Arsene Wenger: This is what Olivier Giroud told me after being sent off during the PSG game


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was satisfied with his side after last night's 1-1 draw away at Paris Saint-Germain.

The Gunners endured a nightmare start to the match as Edinson Cavani gave the hosts the lead after only 42 seconds.

But they bounced back and restored parity in the last part of the game that also saw striker Olivier Giroud being sent off by referee Viktor Kassai.

"I feel overall we played against a good Paris Saint-Germain team, who started much stronger than us," Wenger said.

"They played at a high pace, but even in the first half I think we were in trouble mainly when we lost the ball on the counter-attack because they pressed well.

"Even in the first half you could see that if we managed to keep the ball a bit better we would be dangerous - we created chances. In the first half, our midfield played a bit too far from Alexis.

"In the second half we played higher, and after the kick-off in the second half we had a good chance to come back, which we did. In the end we have experience in the Champions League and we got a good point.

"The ball was on the other side, I did not see what happened.

"I think the first yellow card [for Giroud] was very harsh already, it wasn't a foul. The second, he tells me he has done nothing at all and Olivier is honest so I believe him. And Verratti told me as well that he has done nothing, so I said look, 'go together to see the referee and tell him you did nothing'."
